Rolando Teruel has just published an article with new information on the rare, endemic scorpion Cryptoiclus rodriguezi Teruel & Kovarik, 2012 (Diplocentridae) from Cuba. Updated morphological descriptions and data on distribution, habitat, ecology and reproduction are presented.
The adult male of Cryptoiclus rodriguezi Teruel & Kovarik, 2012, is herein described and illustrated in detail. It represents both the single species of its genus and one of the most seldom-collected , endemic scorpions from Cuba. Its generic diagnosis is emended and new data on its morphological, morphometric and meristic variability are contributed on the basis of the type and 28 additional specimens. Abundant information on its ecology and reproduction are given and its geographic distribution is updated with new records, including the first from Maisi municipality. Despite this, both the genus and the species remain known only from a reduced area in northeastern Guantanamo Province.
