Why Study the Vaejovidae?

Serradigitus harbisoni (Williams 1970)

Vejovis harbisoni Williams, 1970b: 281-286, fig. 4, 5; Soleglad, 1972b: 181; Soleglad, 1973b: 357; Soleglad, 1974: 109, fig. 1.
Serradigitus harbisoni
: Stahnke, 1974a: 132; Williams & Berke, 1986: 351; Sissom & Stockwell, 1991: 202, 203; Kovarík, 1998: 145; Sissom, 2000:521.
Vaejovis harbisoni
: Williams, 1976: 2 (see comment); Williams, 1980: 49, 90, 103, fig. 53J, 54I, 98, 102.
Vaejovis polisi
(part): Beutelspacher, 2000: 102, 137, 138, 153, map 84.

HOLOTYPE:  Vejovis harbisoni Williams Holotype: M (CAS, Type No. 10419), Calamajue Arroyo, Baja California Norte, México.

Original description: Vejovis harbisoni Williams, 1970b: 281-286, fig. 4, 5.

SUBSEQUENT ACCOUNTS:

DISTRIBUTION:  México (Baja California Norte and associated islands).

PUBLISHED RECORds:  Vejovis harbisoni Williams Paratypes: 6M, 5F (CAS, including F allotype), same locality as holotype; 1M, 1F (CAS), 6 mi N Bahía San Luis Gonzaga; 2F (CAS), 7 mi N Bahía San Luis Gonzaga; 1M, 6F, Bahía de Los Angeles, Baja California Norte, México.

nOTES:  Williams (1976) considered Serradigitus subtilimanus Soleglad, 1972 a synonym of this species. Sissom & Stockwell (1991) continued to recognize them as separate taxa, suggesting the case warranted further study.
Beutelspacher (2000) regarded S. harbisoni Williams, 1970 as a junior synonym of S. polisi Sissom & Stockwell, 1992, contrary to the Law of Priority. He provided no justification for the synonymy. The only material he had available for S. polisi was a specimen from Isla Tiburon, Sonora. The differences between S. polisi and S. harbisoni were fully elaborated by Sissom & Stockwell (1992). The population on Isla Tiburon exhibits slight differences from both polisi and
harbisoni and warrants further study.
