Abstract

We describe herein a new species of buthid scorpions, Centruroides lucidus sp. n., from southwestern Dominican Republic (Pedernales and Barahona Provinces), in the Greater Antillean island of Hispaniola. It is most similar to Centruroides nitidus (Thorell, 1876) and Centruroides bani Armas & Marcano, 1987 (both of which occur together with it along the same general area), against which a very detailed comparison is provided. The new species is fully illustrated with color photos of habitus, key diagnostic morphological characters, and habitat.
