Orobothriurus curvidigitus  (Kraepelin, 1911)


♂ ( Fig. 13 A–CView Figure 13, ZMH-A0000914), Peru, [Arequipa Province], Yura [16°07 ’51” S, 71°36 ’22” W], coll. 20.VI.1909, Museum Wiesbaden.


Subadult ♀ ( ZMH-A0000914), same data as lectotype.


Kraepelin (1911) listed one male and one juvenile female from the ZMH collections. His description is not based on a specific specimen and Maury (1975b: 18-19) designated a holotype and an allotype a posteriori. As fixing a holotype after the original publication is not an accepted practice (ICZN 2018: article 73.1.3; see paragraph on Bothriurus burmeisteri  Kraepelin, 1894 above), the male is designated here as the lectotype, and the female is the paralectotype.
