Resumen:
ABSTRACT. Rumikiru, n. gen., a new bothriurid scorpion genus from the coastal Atacama Desert, Chile, is described. This is the first scorpion genus endemic to northern Chile. It is most closely related to Pachakutej Ochoa, 2004 from the inter-Andean valleys of Peru. Orobothriurus lourencoi Ojanguren-Affilastro, 2003 is transferred to the new genus, creating Rumikiru lourencoi (Ojanguren-Affilastro, 2003), n. comb., and a second species of the genus, Rumikiru atacama, n. sp., described.
