Abstract:

The first record for the genus Mesobuthus in Israel is herein reported based onadult specimens of Mesobuthus nigrocinctus (Ehrenberg, 1828), n. comb.(Scorpiones, Buthidae) from Mt. Hermon, the southernmost ridge of the Anti-Lebanon range. This species was originally described from a juvenile specimen from Lebanon, and for a long time was considered a synonym of M. gibbosus (Brullé, 1832). The species is redescribed, illustrated, and compared to M. gibbosus, its closest relative. Some comments on the fauna of Mt.Hermon are included.
