Yet another Vaejovis from USA

Richard Ayrey and Michael Soleglad have published a new species of Vaejovis (Vaejovidae) from Arizona, USA.

Vaejovis crumpi Ayrey & Soleglad, 2011

A new scorpion species, Vaejovis crumpi, sp. nov., is described from Prescott, Yavapai Co., Arizona. This species is related to V. paysonensis Soleglad, 1973, and the “sky island” species of southern Arizona. V. crumpi is compared to the seven Vaejovis species currently reported for Arizona, in particular to V. paysonensis.
