Cheloctonus glaber  Kraepelin, 1896


( Fig. 27 A–CView Figure 27) ♀ ( ZMH-A0000937), Deutsch SW Africa [Namibia], O. Schneider leg., ded. 04.07.1896.


1 subadult ♀, 2 juveniles ( ZMH-A0003127), same data as lectotype.


Kraepelin (1896b: 135) mentioned 6 specimens (male and female) in the original description. He also pointed out that the species was collected in sympatry with the buthid Uroplectes triangulifer  (Thorell, 1876). Only three specimens are currently registered in the ZMH collection and the status of the remaining specimens is unknown. They are also not present in the ZMB collections where some of Kraepelin’s types are deposited. The adult female is designated here as the lectotype and the remaining specimens are paralectotypes.
