Paruroctonus arenicola arenicola Haradon 1984

Paruroctonus arenicola arenicola ►Haradon 1984a: 214, fig. 11, 15-16, 21-22, 25-28, 37, 39; Sissom & Henson 1998: 241, 246; Sissom 2000:509.

type(s) : Paruroctonus arenicola arenicola Haradon - Holotype male (adult) from U.S.A., Nevada, Nye County, Amargosa Desert, 0.8 miles N California and Nevada border, along State Rt. 29, 12 August 1974(R. M. Haradon, W. E. Savary). Depository: California Academy of Sciences (CAS), Type No. 15055.

original description: See Paruroctonus arenicola and "NOTES" below.

distribution:NORTH AMERICA. UNITED STATES: Amargosa Desert in Nevada. View Map

published records:  UNITED STATES: NEVADA: Nye County - Amargosa  Desert, 0.8 mi. N California-Nevada border, along State Rt. 29, 12 August 1974 ( R. M. Haradon, W. .E. Savary), 28 males, 10 females (includes allotype) (CAS).

notes:  Haradon (1984a) diagnosed the nominate form of this species as a "subspecies of P. arenicola differentiated by: basitarsus III with mrs seta present (Figs. 27-28); dorsal metasomasl setae usually 1,2,2-3,3-4; pedipalp fingers adult slightly darker than palm" and noted that it differs from Paruroctonus arenicola nudipes in all three characters.  In regards to variation within the subspecies, he noted:."Of 37 intact specimens, 35 (94.6%) had the diagnostic mrs seta present on both basitarsi III, and two (5.4%) had the mrs seta on one basitarsus only.  Distribution of the dorsal metasomal seta counts is given in Table 2.  Distribution of the pectinal tooth counts is given in Table 1. Pedipalpal primary denticles in rows 1-5 total on fixed Finger 25-33 (30.00 -+ 1.90, n = 30), movable Finger 35-46 (39.87 -+ 2.08, = 31). Adult carapace lengths, male 4.8-6.1 nun, females 5.5-6.4 mm."
