This genus contains only a single species. A. minshullae was described in 1994, from Zimbabwe.
It seeks shelter on the southern side of boulders on granite outcrops, it may also be found under rocks and logs in such areas. Reaches a total length of 30mm. This scorpion has two large lateral eyes on each side of the carapace and two medial eyes giving a total of 6 eyes. A. minshullae is yellowish in colouration and does not have a subaculear tubercle. As with many other scorpion genera A. minshullae males are smaller than females. Because of their small size and colouration, UV light detection is the best technique used for locating members of this genus. This scorpion was named in honour of the late Jacqueline Minshull who founded the department of arachnology at the Bulawayo museum in Zimbabwe. It’s venom is likely to be potent but not life threatening under normal circumstances. Few collection records for this species indicate that it is a rare scorpion. A. minshullae was previously placed in the genus Lychas.
Because of its small size and distribution, this species is unlikely to be encounted.
