I found this little guy a few days ago and I am hoping to find out what it is. It  was found in El Mirage California which is about 30 minutes away from Victorville.

Er...sorry no. That's not a Centruroides exilicauda, it's probably a Vaejovis waeringi judging from the area it was found.

Good call, look at that bulbous, telson and metasoma segments.

It does look more like Vaejovis waeringi. Is there a common name for that species as I can't seem to find one?

Well seeing how common names are literally just names people make up, you can come up with your own. Smile Imagine if there was a common name for all 1,600 known species of scorpions...you'd hear "yellow scorpion" or "California gold scorpion" a myriad of times.

It's not waeringi, I know that. waeringi has much longer fingers on the chelae

here's a waeringi I collected recently:



looks more like V. puritanus, which is a close relative of waeringi, and can be found in desert habitat, as well as coastal scrub/chaparral
