Tityus jaimei Miranda, Bermudez, Florez D & de Armas, 2020
The Central American population of scorpions previously misidentified Tityus pachyurus Pococok, 1897 is described as a new species, which is endemic for most parts of Panama and Limon Province in Costa Rica. As recorded by several authors, those two species are responsible for most of the serious cases of scorpion stinging in Colombia and Panama.
