Centruroides ornatus restored as valid species

de Armas & Martin-Frias (2008) has done a study on the genus Centruroides in the Mexican state Veracruz. Nine species are described from the state and a key to the species is given. In the context of this, the authors restore Centruroides ornatus Pocock, 1902 as a valid species. This taxa has previously been regarded as a subspecies of Centruroides infamatus.
