Morphology, ecology & distribution of Isomterus maculatus in Cuba

Rolando Teruel has written a paper on morphology, ecology & distribution of the introduced scorpion Isometrus maculatus (Buthidae) in Cuba.

The taxonomy and known geographical distribution of the Cuban populations of Isometrus maculatus (DeGeer, 1778) are updated. Also, the morphological variability (body size and proportions, coloration, number of pectinal teeth and primary rows of granules on pedipalp fingers) are herein studied and data are presented
