Abstract:

La presente contribución esclarece la identidad taxonómica de Tityus championi Pocock 1898. Esta especie es claramente distinta de Tityus asthenes Pocock 1893 (considerada su sinónimo anterior desde 1988) y parece ser endémica de la vertiente sur de la Cordillera de Talamanca, en la región fronteriza entre Costa Rica y Panamá.

This species is clearly distinct from Tityus asthenes Pocock 1893 (regarded as its senior synonym since 1988), and appears to be endemic to the southern watershed of the Talamanca Range, in the border region between Costa Rica and Panama.
