Plant climbing behavior in the scorpion Centruroides
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of Bouvardia ternifolia, Aristolochia elegans and Vitex mollis extracts on Centruroides
limpidus limpidus venom lethality in mice, and to determine their antagonist activity on guinea pig ileum.
PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC COMPARISON OF CENTRUROIDES
VITTATUS POPULATIONS IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE AND CENTRAL ARKANSAS.

The taxonomic distinction between Rhopalurus and another New World buthid scorpion genus, Centruroides
Marx 1890, distributed from the southwestern USA throughout Mexico, Central America, the Greater and Lesser Antilles, to northern South America (Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela), remains unclear.
sculpturatus: USA: Arizona: 5 specimens, Alamo Dam State Park, Yuma Co.
vittatus (Say 1821) (Scorpiones; Buthidae), the striped bark scorpion, has a wide distribution utilizing a number of different habitats (Shelley & Sissom 1995).
The new species is the first of the genus to be known from Colombia, raising to five the number of buthid genera in the country: Ananteris Thorell 1891, Centruroides
Marx 1890, Microtityus, Rhopalurus Thorell 1876 and Tityus Koch 1836.
In species such as Centruroides
exilicauda (Wood 1863), Vaejovis spinigerus (Wood 1863), Diplocentrus peloncillensis Francke 1975, and Pseudouroctonus apacheanus (Gertsch & Soleglad 1972) there is no relationship between female size and offspring production (Brown 2004).
rochai showed a short 1st instar phase (8 days) which was similar to Centruroides
gracilis (Latreille 1804) (8 days) (Francke & Jones 1982) and Centruroides
exilicauda (Wood 1863) (7 days) (Brown 2004) and half as long as Tityus trivittatus Kraepelin 1898 at 16 days (Toscano Gadea 2004).
A lectotype is designated for Centruroides
elegans edentulus Werner 1939, originally described from Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.
Four antivenins are commercially available for acute envenomation: black widow spider antivenin, Centruroides
(scorpion) immune [F(ab').
