Name[edit]

Compsobuthus levyi Kovařík, 2012: 5, figs. 20–36

Holotype: FKCP, 1♂.
Type locality: Jordan, near Qasr Burqu, 9. –12.IV.1996, leg. D. Modrý.
Etymology: Named after the Israeli arachnologist Gershom Levy (1937–2009), who in 1973 and 1980 published important works on Compsobuthus from Israel, Jordan and the Arabian Peninsula. Since no specimens of C. werneri from the type locality (Sudan) were available to him, he mistook C. levyi sp. n. for C. werneri werneri.

Synonymy[edit]
