Mexico (Baja California, Baja California Sur, and associated islands)2008

26 May–15 July, 2008: Funded by the NSF REVSYS grant, the Global Survey and Inventory of Solifugae grant and a grant from the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Fund (AMNH). Graduate students Edmundo González (AMNH) and Hector Montaño (IBUNAM) traveled 3,258 km through the deserts of the Baja California Peninsula and San Benito Island on the Pacific coast. González and Irma G. Nieto, a graduate student from Centro de Investigaciones del Noreste (CIBNOR), La Paz, Baja California Sur, collected on five islands in the Sea of Cortez. Approximately 3,000 scorpions, solifuges, amplypygids and spiders were collected, representing approximately 50 species, 12 genera and five families. Highlights of the trip include possible undescribed species in the genera Paruroctonus, Paravaejovis and Vaejovis. Fresh samples of 10 species for the DNA sequencing part of the project were obtained, including five species endemic to the following islands: Cerralvo, Danzante, Espiritu Santo, San Benito, Santa Cruz. González also studied the collection of scorpions housed at the CIBNOR during the period 15–24 June, where he found large series of rare species such Syntropis macrura, Vaejovis pattersoni and the first female specimen ofPseudouroctonus lindsayi.
