Resumen:
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 closelyrelated to Pachakutej Ochoa, 2004, from the inter-Andean valleys of Peru. Orobothriurus lourencoi Ojanguren-Affilastro, 2003, is transferred to the new genus and redescribed, creatingRumikiru lourencoi (Ojanguren-Affilastro, 2003), n. comb., and a second species of the genus,Rumikiru atacama, n. sp., is described.
