Scorpion Preservation for Taxonomic and Morphological Studies

  • PDF

ABSTRACT:

The problems of preserving scorpions for taxonomic and morphological studies are discussed. A new method of scorpion preservation is presented which recommends rapid killing by heat shock fol-lowed by specimen fixation in a modified formalin, alcohol, and acetic acid solution. Specimens prepared by this method have many advantages over those pre-pared by the traditional alcohol-preservation method; they are better preserved, a more natural color is maintained, hardness or brittleness may be avoided, and taxonomic study is facilitated without specimen destruction.
