Hey everybody,
I'm new to the forum, so if this is in the wrong area, let me know. I'm visiting the Huntington Beach area in Southern California. I wanted to go find a few local scorpions, any recommendations on nearby areas I could look? Any help appreciated, thanks.

Hey Joshuats99! I live in SoCal and as far as I know there are no native scorps living here. I do hope I am wrong though!

To find scorpions, you must locate undisturbed habitat. The only portions of HB where you have a shot at finding any are generally gated off or protected from collection.

Southern california has quite a few species, especially in our deserts, but there's quite a bit of diversity here in the coastal regions, as well.

Anuroctonus pococki- Found in scrub, but much more common in chaparral habitats. Likes dry sandy clay hillsides. Often occurs alongside aphonopelma.

Paruroctonus silvestrii- Found in riparian, oak woodland, coastal scrub. prefers sandy areas. Burrower, but also takes refuge under stones and wood.

Serradigitus gertschi- Found in dry talus-strewn slopes or cliff faces. Prefers to hang upside-down, or vertically in crevices. lithophilous.

Pseudouroctonus williamsi- Found in coastal scrub. Doesnt burrow, but scrapes under rocks. Fairly common where found.

Pseudouroctonus minimus- Found in coastal scrub, oak woodland, broadleaf forest. more comman than williamsi.

Vaejovis puritanus- Chaparral and coastal scrub. More common in true chaparral or savannah habitat. Likes drier areas, much like its close relative P waeringi, which is only found in desert habitat.
