Heya Chad,

I trust you've been well.

I was just chatting with Rolando a few weeks back and suggested he sit down and write a book on the Cuban or Antillean scorpion fauna. Would make a great read!

All my best,
Luc

Heya Chad,

Thanks for posting the above knols. I've updated one of the pages with more current information regarding C. sculturatus and global scorpionism. I have additional data on recent envenomations related to C. sculpturatus but can't use the data until the papers are "In Press"!

Cheers,
Luc

For those who want to pursue it further, Luis de Armas also has a book published on the subject of Antillean scorpions. Sinopsis de los escorpiones antillanos (trans. Synopsis of the Scorpions of the Antilles), published in 1985 and reprinted in 1988. It's a decent species-by-species breakdown of the scorpions in that region.

Unfortunately, I do not know how available it is outside of Cuba, and I'm not aware of any English translation.

Hi Bill,

It is a good but slightly outdated treatment of the scorpions of the Caribbean (Neotropical) Region. I would like to see a newer version of the book published as there's a great paucity of data regarding the scorpion fauna of the region. However, for those interested in the fauna of the region, Dr. Perez at the Smithsonian just sent me his slightly large (530 pp.) treatment on the Fauna of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti). It's an incredibly thorough treatment and an incredible read.
Anyone interested in a copy, shoot me an "e" at:

lucian.ross@yahoo.com
or
barkscorpions@yahoo.com

Additionally, I've (along with T. C. van der Ende and Rolando Teruel) posted a "Scorpion of the Month" contribution on Venom List that lists the buthid scorpion fauna of the Antilles (up to 2008) and the increasing need for effective conservation measures of the Antillean fauna.

Cheers,
Luc

Hi all,

Passing info to the board from the ISA email:

Quote:
Speleological monograph

James Cokendolpher has asked me to make you aware of the following monograph:

"The latest Speleological Monograph was published yesterday. Currently, pdfs are available for free. The table of contents and links can be found at:

<http://www.nsrl.ttu.edu/personnel/cokendolpher/speleobooks/TOC.html>.

There are articles on four orders of arachnids as well as cave dwelling insects, millipedes, and crustacea. Hard copies of the monograph can be picked up in person if you are attending the International Speleological Congress this summer (in Texas). If you need information about the congress please write.

Enjoy,

James Cokendolpher & James Reddell


All the best,

Sinc. Chad

Hi all,

Passing info to the board from ISA.

Quote:
Dear colleagues,

I’m sorry to have to announce the recent death of Robert W. Mitchell, the American zoologist whom some of you may know through his work on scorpions, ricinuleids and further cave arachnids and other organisms. Attached is a summary of his work and life kindly provided via James Cokendolpher.

Yours sincerely,

Jason Dunlop (Secretariat)


More info is found at Jan's site

Quote:
I'm sorry to announce the recent death of the cave biologist and invertebrate zoologist Robert W. Mitchell (1933-2010). Dr. Mitchell has a very long and impressive list of publications, but for us scorpion people he is especially known for his work on troglobitic and troglomorphic scorpions.

Scorpion taxa described by Dr. Mitchell:

Typhlochactas Mitchell, 1971
T. reddelli Mitchell, 1968
T. rhodesi Mitchell, 1968
Sotanochactas elliotti (Mitchell, 1971)

Typhlochactas mitchelli Sissom, 1988 was named in honor of Dr. Mitchell.

In the early days of The Scorpion Files (2001-2002), Dr. Mitchell contacted me and sent me several pictures of some of "his" troglobitic scorpions to be used in The Scorpion Files. This was a great gesture, as these scorpions are among the rarest scorpions in the world, and I'm very grateful for his contribution!

RIP!

David told me last week (spring break) that this was imminent. He was visiting James in Lubbock and called me about Dr. Mitchell, who got Sissom interested in arachnids. David published his first paper on schizomids with Mitchell.

Sad times.
