I second Patcho, although Androctonus aren't really my forte.

How does one tell the difference between A. bicolor and A. crassicauda? They look so similar.

Refer to the above picture for A. crassicauda.

If you notice, A. crassicauda is dark brown, and lacks the "bicolor" coloration. A. bicolor is black, and the has light yellowish color at the end of their legs and chela, hence the name "bicolor".

Well, A. mauritanicus has a matt black/greyish color. They're pretty easy to tell apart if you looked at all three at the same time.

Beautiful pics man!

As for you unknown scorpion, I will read up more but judging on appearances, I agree with Patrick on this one, looks more like A. Crassicauda because of the brownish hue, as to the Androctonus Bicolor, who is more glossy black and the A. Mauretanicus who is matted black. However remains hard to say. When it has reached maturity it will be easier to tell I think.
