Why study vaejovids?

Paruroctonus boquillas Sissom & Henson 1998

Paruroctonus boquillas Sissom & Henson, 1998: 240-246, fig. 1-8; Sissom, 2000: 509-510.

type(s):  Paruroctonus boquillas Sissom & Henson: Holotype male (adult) from U.S.A., Texas, Brewster County, Big Bend National Park, Boquillas Canyon (29º12’02’’ N, 102 °55’11’’ W).  Depository: United States National Museum (USNM).

original description:

subsequent accounts:

distribution: NORTH AMERICA. UNITED STATES (Texas): Boquillas Canyon, Big Bend National Park. View Map

published records:  Paratypes: 2M, 11F, numerous subadults and juveniles (USNM, AMNH, CAS, WDS, RNH), same locality as holotype.

notes:  Sissom and Hendrickson (2005), in a Key to the Vaejovid Scorpion Species of Northeastern México, characterized this species as follows: Dorsolateral carinae of metasoma more or less evenly denticulate throughout (i.e., without an enlarged terminal denticle); legs I–III with distinct retrolateral setal combs; Anterior margin of carapace almost straight; fixed cheliceral finger with ventral keel extending from tip to bicusp area; Pectinal tooth counts above 24 in males and 17 in females; basitarsus of leg II without mrs seta (Haradon 1985; Sissom & Henson 1998); pedipalp chela fixed finger with more than 30 primary denticles (excluding those of proximal row); Pedipalp femur with four external medial setae; with 1, 1, 1–2, 2 pairs of setae on dorsolateral carinae of metasoma I–IV; with 0, 2, 2, 3 pairs of setae on the lateral supramedians; with 2 pairs of setae on lateral inframedians of metasomal segment I; with 2,3, 4, 5 pairs of setae on the ventrolaterals of metasoma I–IV.
