A new species of Ananteris from Suriname

Wilson Lourenco and co-workers recently published a new species of Ananteris Thorell, 1891 (Buthidae) from Suriname. 

Ananteris pierrekondre Lourenço, Chevalier, Gangadin & Ythier, 2020

A new species belonging to the genus Ananteris Thorell is described from a sandy dry forest formation located in Pierre Kondre, nearby Carolina, Para District in Suriname, a site located near the Suriname river. The description of this new species brings further evidence about the biogeographic patterns of distribution presented by most species of the genus Ananteris, which are highly endemic in most natural formations of South America. The new species is the second one of the genus Ananteris to be described from Suriname.
