A new Chaerilus from China

The number of species in the Asian genus Chaerilus is growing. A few days ago I told about a new species from Nepal, this time a new species is described from China by Di and Zhu:

Chaerilus mainlingensis Di & Zhu, 2009 (Chaerilidae)


Di Z-Y, Zhu M-S. A new species of Chaerilus Simon, 1877 (Scorpiones, Chaerilidae) from China. Acta Arachnologica. 2009;58(2):97-102.

A big thanks to Gerard Dupre for keeping me updated on scorpion publications!!
