Bothriurus trivittatus  Werner, 1939


( Fig. 6 D–FView Figure 6) ♀ (metasoma broken) ( ZMH-A000906), Bolivia, La Paz Province, Bez. Araca [Araca District] [16°49 ’00” S, 67°33 ’00” W], 125 km südöstl. von La Paz [125 km SE of La Paz], 4200 m, 10 –12.1910– 1916, Charles Bock leg., ded. 12.08.1921.


1 ♂ ( Fig. 6 A–CView Figure 6), 1 ♀, 1 subadult ♂, 2 subadult ♀, 1 juvenile ( ZMH-A000906), Same data as holotype.

Probably not types.

1 subadult ♂, 1 ♀ ( ZMH-A0002232), Bolivien [Bolivia], La Paz Province, Yungas District, Chulumani [16°24 ’30” S, 67°31 ’45” W], 125 km östl. von La Paz [125 km East of La Paz], 1600-2000m, 09-10.1916, Charles Bock leg., ded. 12.08.1921.


Werner (1939) only mentioned one female from Araca with 15 pectinal teeth and this specimen should be considered as the holotype. The other specimens from the same series are paratypes by definition. Maury (1973) mentioned holotype and paratypes from Araca and cotypes from Chulumani. There is no evidence that Werner examined the material from Chulumani when naming the species and these specimens are probably not types. A specimen from the type series ( ZMH-A000905) is labelled as belonging to a different species, probably by Maury who studied the material in 1970. No valid species name is, however, provided for this specimen and it may still be undescribed.

Remarks on collector.
