The distributional ranges of closely related species are invariably allopatric or parapatric, especially in the non-buthid genera Cheloctonus, Opisthacanthus, Hadogenes, and Opistophthalmus. The distributions of Opisthacanthus and Hadogenes are almost mutually exclusive, Opisthacanthus occupying the length of the eastern escarpment and the Cape Fold Mountains (excluding the Cedarberg) and Hadogenes occupying the interior plateau and the Cedarberg. 3 Hotspots Hotspot analysis of species richness indicates that most parts of southern Africa contain at least one scorpion species (Fig.
