New species in Ananteroides from Mauritania

A new species of Ananteroides have been discovered in Mauritania by Wilson Lourenco.
Wilson Lourenco has recently published an article describing a new species in the small genus Ananteroides Borelli, 1911 (Buthidae) from Mauritania.

Ananteroides inexpectatus Lourenco, 2013

A new species of Ananteroides Borelli is described from the region located about 100 km north of Rosso, in southwestern Mauritania. This is the second species to be described for the genus Ananteroides, which was created more than one century ago. The new species may represent an element endemic to this rather arid part of Mauritania.
