Alloscorpiops viktoriae: A new species of Burrowing Scorpion from the Magway Region of Myanmar.

Burrowing Scorpions of the genus Alloscorpiops are found across southern and central Thailand, as well as in parts of neighbouring Vietnam and Laos, where they are found in both dry and humid tropical forests. 

In a paper published in the journal ZooKeys on 17 July 2018, Wilson Lourenço of the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, and Ondřej Košulič of the Department of Forest Protection and Wildlife Management at the Mendel University in Brno, describe a new species of Alloscorpiops from the Magway Region of central Myanmar.

The new species is named Alloscorpiops viktoriae, in honour of Viktorie Košuličová, the daughter of Ondřej Košulič, and the proximity of the site where the species was discovered to Mount Victoria, 'the most impressive peak of Central Myanmar'. It is described from three specimens, two adult females and a juvenile male, found on a sandy riverbank. The species is reddish to dark brown in colour and small for a member of the genus Alloscorpiops, with one of the adult females measuring 50.9 mm.
