Abstract: The intention of The Scorpion Files is to present an updated list of all extant scorpion species and the current situation in scorpion taxonomy. The Scorpion Files' family and species lists reflect the most recent published works, and not necessarily which system the editor believes is correct. The list does not contain synonymy yet. Data have been harvested by Eli Agbayani (Encyclopedia of Life) from the original website.
