Scorpions being solitary animals are interesting in their distribution patterns. Nevertheless, the subject of scorpion distribution has received relatively less attention than other ecological aspects of that group. It is a matter that changes continuously and moreover it is hard to define. Three different scales in distribution are introduced here: (1) Mini-distribution which describes the presence of scorpions under a single shelter or in a burrow, within a single habitat, (2) micro-distribution describing the distribution within a single habitat, and (3) macro-distribution within different habitats. Most research in scorpion distribution concentrated on the first aspect the mini-distribution. The subject is reviewed in scorpions and discussed.
