New comments on the scorpions belonging to the ‘Ananteris group’ and description of a new genus and species from Ghana (Scorpiones: Buthidae)



Abstract. A new genus and species of buthid scorpion, associated with the ‘Ananteris group’ are described from the region of Tamale in Ghana. The new genus shows affinities with the genus Ananteroides Borelli, 1911 but can be clearly diagnosticated by a number of particular characters. This new scorpion taxon may represent an endemic element to the Western region of Africa.
