On the presence of the genus Buthus Leach, 1815 in Sudan with the description of a new species from the enclave of Karora (Scorpiones: Buthidae)



Abstract. The presence of the genus Buthus Leach, 1815 in Sudan is discussed and a new species, Buthus karoraensis sp. n., is described on the base of eight specimens from Karora, an Eritrean enclave within Sudan. Although the new species is almost surely present also in Sudan, actually the only known species remains Buthus brignolii Lourenço, 2003.
