Vaejovis mexicanus mexicanus C. L. Koch 1836
HOLOTYPE: Vaejovis mexicanus C. L. Koch Syntypes: (numbers and sexes unknown), “México”; types are not in ZMB (M. Moritz, pers. comm., 1985) or the BMNH (J. Knight, pers. comm.), and may be lost.
distribution: NORTH AMERICA. México (Distrito Federal: Valle de México, Estado de México).
notes: Previous records for this species in the United States (e.g., Banks, 1900a: 424; Chamberlin, 1921; Ewing, 1928: 10, 12) are based on misidentifications or erroneous locality data (some apparently referring to the Eagle Pass, Texas record from Marx collection). Ewing’s (1928: 12) treatment of the species identifies only the subspecies dugesi (now a full species) and smithi in central México. For the nominal subspecies, Ewing lists erroneous records in the state of Durango in the Baerg collection [based on specimens of V. coahuilae; repeated by Baerg (1929: 427)]. Records for Hidalgo (Beutelspacher, 2000) and Guerrero (Source?) are also incorrect (E. González Santillán, pers. obs.).
