Hemiscorpius lepturus  Peters, 1861


1 ♂ ( Fig. 24 A–BView Figure 24, 2321), 1 ♀ ( Fig. 24 C–DView Figure 24, 2322) ( ZMH-A000894), Irak, [Mendeli], Baghdad [33°20 ’26” N, 44°24 ’03” E], 1893 [Peterman leg.], Wilhelm Peters don. ( ZMB).


Peters (1861a) described the genus Hemiscorpius  . The first time the nominal species is cited in the text, it is incorrectly spelled as Hemiscorpion lepturus  but we follow the modified spelling. Four syntypes ( ZMB/Arach-43, two males, two females) are lodged in the ZMB collections.
