Resumen:
Bothriurus picunche, a new species belonging to the vittatus species-group, is described. It can be separated from other species in the group by the pigmentation patterns of the prosoma, mesosoma and ventral side of metasoma; and by small differences in the arrangement of the ventral keels and setae of caudal segment V. The species is distributed in the Chilean provinces of Chacabuco, Cardenal Caro, Curicó, Talca and Cauquenes. Some zoogeographical aspects are discussed.
