oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Opisthacanthus lamorali, nouvelle espèce de Scorpionidae pour la Région Afrotropicale (Arachnida: Scorpionida)

Volume 24, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



A new species of Scorpionidae, Opisthacanthus lamorali, is descriptionbed on the basis of 51 specimens (20 males, 31 females) collected in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia). A study of variation in the number of pectinal teeth demonstrates that no sexual differences exist. O. lamorali closely resembles O. validus Thorell and so their separation using morphological characteristics is discussed.
