  5. Are those the only two hottentotta sp. that are Parthenogenic?

    OBmorf Arachnopeon

    Hottentotta hottentotta (Fabricius, 1787)
    Hottentotta caboverdensis Lourenco & Ythier, 2006
    Centruroides gracilis (Latreille, 1804)
    Ananteris coinaui Lourenço, 1982
    Tityus serrulatus (Lutz & Mello, 1922)
    Tityus uruguayensis (Borelli, 1901)
    Tityus columbianus (Thorell, 1876)
    Tityus metuendus Pocock, 1897
    Tityus stigmurus (Thorell, 1876)
    Tityus trivittatus Kraepelin 1898
    Liocheles australasiae (Fabricius, 1775)

    And Hottentotta "nigrocarinatus" - if You say, that it is not synonime

    You can read it in:

    Can You give me any reliable references/soruces ? I think that female of I. maculatus can accumulate fluid from spermatophore for long time, but it is not parthenogenic...

    I didnt know that C. gracilis was a parthenogenic species. That just makes me want some even more.

    C gracilis is parthenogenic? Are you serious?
  11. If I recall correctly only C. gracilis from Cuba is parthenogenetic.

    You might as well say they aren't. The chances of getting them from Cuba are, well, slim-to-none.

    It seems interesting to me that C. gracillis from Cuba are parthenogenetic and the ones in the US are not.
    Are their any that live in the keys or some of the other Caribbean islands that show parthenogeneic traits similar to the Tityus sp. that breed male/female as well as female clones.
    This would be a great project for some grad student that wants to chase bugs all summer in the Caribbean. It would be a really tough field study if you ask me. :}

    Is NOT parthenogenetic! It can deliver multiple broods after one insemination, but that's a whole other ballgame biologically ;)

    Ten of the known parthenogenetic species belong to the family Buthidae, i.e.: Centruroides gracilis (Latreille), Tityus columbianus (Thorell), Tityus metuendus Pocock, Tityus serrulatus Lutz & Mello, Tityus stigmurus (Thorell), Tityus trivittatus Kraepelin, Tityus uruguayensis Borelli, Ananteris coineaui Lourenço, Hottentotta hottentotta (Fabricius), Hottentotta caboverdensis Lourenço & Ythier, Tityus neblina Lourenço and one member of the family Liochelidae, i.e. Liocheles australasiae (Fabricius) (Lourenço, 2008; Lourenço & Cloudsley-Thompson, 2010). And the newest one is Tityus confluens Borelli (Seiter, 2012).

  19. Thanks, Michael. Good to see that T. confluens was consistent enough to make the list.

    Yes, cantthinkofone this should be sticky, but don't expect the mods to react to these type of hints.....You would have more luck getting their attention if you would type a "naughty" word here, then, ten mods would be all over you.....
