The scorpion found "by mistake" adds a fascinating new species to the biodiversity of North America. The study was published in the open access journal ZooKeys.

An article in ACS' Journal of Chemical Education, however, focuses on the real chemistry -- of poisons and potions -- that intertwines famous operatic plots.
