Abstract

A unique new species of the genus Vaejovis is described: V. cisnerosi from deciduous scrub forest in the Balsas Basin in Michoacan state, Mexico. Morphological characters, including the hemispermatophore of the holotype male, are illustrated. The closest relative of V. cisnerosi within the genus is unknown, but hemispermatophore morphology, tarsal setation, and trichobothrial patterns suggest close ties with the V. eusthenura, V. intrepidus and V. punctipalpi groups.
