Two new species of the genus Buthus (Leach, 1815) were described in 2004 in Spain: B. montanus Lourenço & Vachon, 2004 and B. ibericus Lourenço & Vachon, 2004. Gantenbein & Largiadèr (2003) distinguished divergent clades among European Buthus in their phylogenetic analysis. Subsequently, Sousa et al. (2010) reported five distinct mtDNA lineages within Buthus from the Iberian Peninsula, two of which they reported for the first time. In the present work, a new species, Buthus elongatus n. sp., is described, which is most similar to one of the two lineages of Sousa et al. (2010): samples Sc 98 and Sc 99, lineage 3 in their study, from southern Spain, which resemble Buthus occitanus morphologically, but differ from the other specimens of this species by 8.6%. A key for all European Buthus and a summary of their distribution are provided. Source

A new species of the genus Euscorpius Thorell, 1876 is described based on specimens collected from Dilek Peninsula (Davutlar, Aydin) in Turkey. It is characterized by an oligotrichous trichobothrial pattern (Pv= 7, et= 5/6, eb= 4) and small size. Euscorpius (Euscorpius) avcii sp. n. is the first named species of the subgenus Euscorpius from Turkey. Source

Both the actual finding of several specimens and numerous photographic reports allow us to ascertain for the first time in Italy, precisely in the Mediterranean areas of Sicily and Sardinia, and in Malta, the presence of Argiope trifasciata (Forsskål, 1775) (Araneae, Araneidae). With the help of habitus and genital macro photographs, the collected specimens are described and compared with the other congeneric European species. General ecology and European distribution are also discussed. Source

In this work we present new records of Steatoda nobilis (Thorell, 1875), a species originally from Madeira and the Canary Islands, for the Italian mainland and Sardinia. We discuss local ecology and ethology and provide brief genital and morphological descriptions of both sexes. Source
