Skorpiovenator bustingorryi is known from a single, nearly complete skeleton missing only most of the forelimbs and parts of the tail. The specimen was recovered from the Huincul Formation in Patagonia, dating to the late Cretaceous, about 93 million years ago.It lived alongside with other carnivorous dinosaurs such as the carcharodontosaurid Mapusaurus and another abelisaurid, Ilokelesia.
The name Skorpiovenator bustingorryi is derived from the Greek and Latin for "scorpion hunter," due to the abundant scorpions present at the dig site, and the specific name honors Manuel Bustingorry, who owned the farm where the specimen was found.
Skorpiovenator length is 9 m (29,5 feet).
