REVSYS: SYSTEMATICS OF THE
SCORPION FAMILY VAEJOVIDAE

Southern México (Chiapas): Eight days (5–12 April, 2005), mostly funded by the Instituto de Ecología, UNAM.  REVSYS Collaborator Dr. Oscar Francke travelled with undergraduate students Alejandro Valdez (UNAM) and Jesús Ballesteros (Instituto Politecnico Nacional) to Frontera Corozal, in the Lacandona Rainforest Biosphere Reserve, where he is involved in a survey of arachnid diversity in conjunction with the Instituto de Ecología, UNAM.  Incidental expenses charged to REVSYS Vaejovidae helped collect additional samples of scorpions (3 species), amblypygids (2 species), uropygid (1 species), schizomids (2 species), palpigrades (2 species), several Opiliones and spiders.
