Abstract

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