Butheolus ferrugineus Kraepelin, 1898

Butheolus ferrugineus Kraepelin, 1898: 43 ; Kraepelin, 1899: 37; Kraepelin, 1901: 267; Weidner, 1959: 99; Pérez Minnocci, 1974: 20; Vachon, 1980: 255; Kovařík, 1998: 105; Fet & Lowe, 2000: 88; Lourenço, 2001: 177; Kovařík, 2003: 137.

= Neobuthus berberensis Hirst, 1911: 462 ; Borelli, 1919: 365; Borelli, 1931: 219; Werner, 1934: 270; Moriggi, 1941: 90; Caporiacco, 1947: 232; Probst, 1973: 329; Lamoral & Reynders, 1975: 513; Fet & Lowe, 2000: 186; Lourenço, 2001: 178, 179 (syn. by Kovařík, 2003: 137).

Butheolus (Neobuthus) berberensis: El-Hennawy, 1992: 115 ; Kovařík, 1998: 105.

TYPE LOCALITY AND TYPE REPOSITORY. Tadjura Bay , Golf of Aden, Djibouti ; ZMUH.

TYPE MATERIAL EXAMINED. Djibouti, Gulf of Aden, Tadjura Bay, 1♂ A (holotype), ZMUH. Somalia, Berbera, 1♀ A (holotype of Neobuthus berberensis Hirst, 1911 ), BMNH No. 1906.3.25.125, purchased G. W. Bury .

OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED. Somalia, Chisimaio , VI. 1980, 1♀ E, leg. Dorsak, FKCP .

DIAGNOSIS: First to fourth metasomal segments ventrally with two median carinae and more or less granulated. Fifth metasomal segment ventrally with median carina and granulated. Metasoma, mesosoma, legs and pedipalps yellow. Movable fingers bear 6 to 8 rows of granules that have internal and external granules. Chela of pedipalp dorsally smooth, without strong carinae. Tarsomere I of first to third legs with bristlecombs, tarsomere I of fourth legs without bristlecombs.

DISTRIBUTION. Djibouti (Kraepelin, 1898: 43), Somalia ( Hirst, 1911: 464). Since its taxonomic position is questionable and it can be easily confused with other species, namely of the genus Butheolus , I consider its occurrence unproven also in Eritrea ( Borelli, 1931: 219).
