New papers on two Mexican scorpions

Two new papers have been published on the distribution and taxonomy of the Mexican species Centruroides tecomanus Hoffmann, 1932 (Buthidae) and Vaejovis pusillus Pocock, 1898 (Vaejovidae).

The papers are written in Spanish and unfortunately lack English abstracts.
