status

 

* Scolopendra angulata explorans Chamberlin, 1914  

Material examined. ICN-M.Ch-0009, 1 specimen, Amazonas, Leticia, KM 1 vía Tarapacá, Grupo Estudiantes Sistemática Animal , 30-X- 2007, 120 m.  

Distribution. Scolopendra angulata explorans   was known only from its type locality, Rio Madeira, state of Mato Grosso in Brazil. It is recorded here from Colombia in the Amazonian Región on the Brazilian border.

Altitudinal range. Known only from the one locality at 120 m.

Remarks. Scolopendra angulata explorans   was described by Chamberlin (1914) as S. explorans   . Attems (1930) considered S. explorans   close to S. angulata   , and Bücherl (1942) proposed the combination S. angulata explorans   . Body size and absence of a lateral spine in the coxopleuron in S. angulata explorans   is the main difference between S. angulata angulata   and S. angulata explorans   .
