How many scorpion species do exist ?

Beitragvon gizzle » 07.05.2016, 21:25

1400
Thats the number you will mostly find on the net.
1400 worldwide known scorpion species classified.

A few years ago, people talked about roughly 1700.

Nowadays "experts" estimate: round about 2000 species.

Thats what i've heard. Are these numbers correct ?
Can someone confirm them ?

Hi :-)

I dont know how much we have today but i know that we have much more than 1700 scorpion species.
The last years much new species was determined and some lifted in species status.

When i think a few years ago we had in the most countrys merely Buthus occitanus. Look what we have today only on Buthus sp. from Morocco :-)

right Alex,

i guess the number should be around
maybe 2300 spices. But obviously i dont
know for sure. A few days ago, i've read a article
which says: 1400 species worldwide known
and 2000 waiting to get classified!
Sadly i don't know when the article was written down
or if these numbers are true.
