Abstract

The nitidulus group of Vaejovis is defined on the basis of pedipalp chela morphology and dentition, trichobothrial patterns, and carinal structure of the pedipalp chela and the metasoma. Five species are treated herein: V. mexicanus decipiens Hoffmann is elevated to specific status and transferred to the nitidulus group; V. intermedius Borelli, V. nigrescens Pocock, and V. nitidulus C. L. Koch are all considered valid species and redescribed; and V. minckleyi Williams is transferred to the group and a revised diagnosis given.
