Advertisement Here's the summary of the article: "Researchers have documented 104 scorpions spanning dozens of countries, providing a vital update to the global record of medically significant scorpions, or scorpions whose venom could be alternately gravely harmful or medically beneficial to human beings". here's the link: /www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181009102451.htm After I read this in the article, "How to go about collecting more reliable data? Ward said all citizen scientists can have a part to play. "The first thing to do if you get stung by a scorpion is to stay calm," she said. "If you can, try to take a picture of the scorpion or put it in a cup and bring it to the emergency room with you. They can send it to a museum or somewhere where they can properly identify that species and associate it with the specific symptoms that you have. That's what we need." I wondered if they would be interested in the sting reports on this site. Or would they consider it hearsay? Of course, it might not pay to make them aware of what's being kept privately in the hobby.
