This information reflects views on the classification of scorpions, based on Dr. Stockwell's Ph.D. dissertation, “Revision of the phylogeny and higher classification of scorpions (Chelicerata)”, from 1989. The supra-generic classification is sequenced and annotated. However, the order of the listing of the genera for each category does not imply any phylogenetic relationship. Fossil taxa are marked by a dagger (†). The cladograms on which this classification are based are also available.

Class SCORPIONIDA Latreille, 1810
