The scorpion genus Alacran Francke, , endemic to eastern Mexico, was created to accommodate Alacran tartarus Francke, This remarkable troglobiotic species is adapted for life in some of the world’s deepest caves, – m below the surface in the Sistema Huautla of the state of Oaxaca (the deepest records at which a scorpion has been found). A second species, Alacran chamuco Cited by: 8. In biology, taxonomy (from Ancient Greek τάξις (taxis), meaning 'arrangement', and -νομία (-nomia), meaning ' method ') is the science of naming, defining (circumscribing) and classifying groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics. Organisms are grouped together into taxa (singular: taxon) and these groups are given a taxonomic rank ; groups of a given.
Liassoscorpionides is an extinct genus of scorpions from the Toarcian of Germany. It was found on the Posidonia Shale, near Niedersachsen on a layer full of insect genera. The holotype consists of a partial body fossil, measuring mm in length and mm in width. Biology Questions and Answers Form 2; More than biology questions and answers to help you study biology.

In his revision of the genus Scorpiops, Vachon () described three new subgenera, Alloscorpiops, Euscorpiops, and Neoscorpiops, in addition to the nominotypical subgenus Scorpiops.
Alloscorpiops was defined on the basis of an important ‘majorante’ neobothriotaxy with 10–12 ventral trichobothria on the surface of pedipalp chela-hand, whereas the other subgenera presented only four by: 6.

The lack of a reliable phylogeny for scorpions is a major impediment for evolutionary studies of Cited by: In the present note, a remarkable new genus and species belonging to the family Scorpiopidae are described from Saddan Cave, located in Kayin State, Hpa-An, Burma-Myanmar (Fig.
1, Fig. 2, Fig. 3, Fig. 4, Fig. 5).This new scorpion taxon is the fourth species of Scorpiopidae, to be discovered in cave systems and the first one belonging to a new by: 2. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree.
This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right. Adults range in size from cm to 21 cm in length. Some fossil scorpions are thought to have been up to 1 meter in length. All are predatory.
Their prey includes a variety of arthropods and other invertebrates, and the larger species are known to prey on small vertebrates. The scorpion's most notorious feature is its poisonous sting.

Prendini’s research addresses the systematics, biogeography and evolution of scorpions, using a combination of morphological, molecular and distributional data, and diverse analytical tools. Current research on scorpions is focused in three main areas: reconstructing the phylogeny and revising.This article is about the arthropod.
