    We can now add one more species to the global scorpion roster. Scientists have discovered a new and mysterious scorpion species, Euscorpius lycius, in southwestern Turkey, in what was once ancient Lycia.

    The poisonous pincher is relatively small for a scorpion, measuring between 2 and 2.5 centimeters long – compared to some scorpions that can reach nearly 25 centimeters (10 inches) in length. Euscorpius lycius has a pale body with claws that are a dark brown or reddish color.
