Bothriurus bocki   Kraepelin, 1911


Subadult ♂ ( Fig. 3 A–B View Figure 3 , ZMH-A0000900), Bolivien [Bolivia], [La Paz], Sorata [15°46 ’23” S, 68°38 ’59” W], 09.1900, Charles Bock leg., ded. 8.05.1901.


Subadult ♂ ( ZMH-A0000900), same data as lectotype.


Maury (1984) designated the specimen with 9-9 pectinal teeth as the lectotype and the other specimen as the paralectotype.

Remarks on collector. Charles Bock (1923-?) was a mining engineer who traveled to Bolivia and Argentina ( Garth 1957). The specimen was probably collected during his travels.
