Liocheles nigripes in India

We know quite a lot about the fauna of India (much summed in the book "Fauna of India - Scorpionida" by Tikader & Bastawade (1983)), but the knowledge of the fauna of India is far from complete.

Maqsood Javed and co-workers have now published the first finding of Liocheles nigripes (Hemiscorpiidae) in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The paper also has a checklist of the scorpions in this state.

No abstract - see free fulltext for more info about the content.
