The scorpion fauna of Trinidad and Tobago is well- known, with nine species in two families having been re- corded throughout the islands  (Kjellesvig-Waering 1966; Lourenço and Huber 1999; Prendini 2001). However, there are still gaps in  the exact distribution of the spe- cies especially in the smaller islands off the northwestern  point of Trinidad. Here we provide details of three new records for Chacachacare and Huevos islands.
