BALDAZO-MONSIVAIZ, José Guadalupe; PONCE-SAAVEDRA, Javier  e  FLORES-MORENO, Miguel. A new scorpion species of medical importance of the genus Centruroides (Scorpiones: Buthidae) from the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2013, vol.84, n.1, pp.100-116. ISSN 2007-8706.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7550/rmb.31967.

Centruroides villegasi sp. nov. from the municipality of Chilapa de Álvarez, Guerrero, Mexico is described. It is the nineth species of Centruroides reported for this state. The new species is compared with C. limpidus (Karsch, 1879) which is morphologically similar and inhabits the same geographic zone. The species C. balsasensis Ponce and Francke, 2004, C. meisei Hoffmann, 1938, and C. tecomanus Hoffmann, 1932 are also compared because they are found in Guerrero and belong to the "striped scorpions" group (sensu Hoffmann, 1932), and therefore they are morphologically similar to the new species. It is a species of medical importance that had not been collected or recognized previously. A list of species of scorpions recorded for the state of Guerrero is included after the revision and correction of historical records.
