U.S.A. (Arizona, California, New Mexico) 2008

6–12 May, 2008: funded by East Carolina University. Volunteer Zach Valois (Utah) and Brent E. Hendrixson (Postdoctoral Fellow, East Carolina University) flew into Las Vegas from Salt Lake City, Utah and Raleigh, North Carolina, respectively, for a trip of more than 1,700 miles through the desert communities of of southeastern California, southern Nevada, and the northern half of Arizona. Between blacklighting for scorpions until late into the night and searching for tarantulas at the crack of dawn, Valois and Hendrixson obtained only a few hours of sleep each night. In spite of fatigue, the trip was fairly successful. More than fifty scorpions were collected, representing six genera and at least 11 species, including Hadrurus obscurus, near the eastern extent of its range. Some populations of Hadrurus obscurus and H. spadix were found in some considerably sandy areas, as opposed to the rocky outcrops and escarpments in which these species are most commonly found.
