notes: Beutelspacher's (2000) records of V. dugesi and V. granulatus from Michoacán are based upon misidentified specimens of V. monticola (W.D. Sissom, E. González Santillán, unpublished data).
The types of Parabroteas montezuma have been studied by M. E. Soleglad (pers. comm.,1998), and it is his opinion that P. montezuma is conspecific with Vaejovis mexicanus mexicanus. Consequently, the type locality for P. montezuma, originally questioned by Penther himself, seems dubious.
Beutelspacher's (2000) records of V. mexicanus (apparently meaning the subspecies mexicanus) from Morelos, San Luis Potosí, and Tamaulipas are probably all erroneous; the latter is based on a record from Cueva San Rafael de los Castros of "Vaejovis sp. (mexicanus group)" from Reddell & Mitchell (1971a).
