Haradon, Richard M. 1983. has Smeringurus mesaensis as a new subgenus of Paruroctonus mesaensis however Jan Ove Rein website "Scorpion Files" has no listing of a P.mesaensis in the specie listing.
I'm assuming P.mesaensis is no longer valid and i'm trying to find a date for when this occured.
Can anyone help me?

The subgenus was given full generic status in 1992 by Stockwell.

Cheers,
