Definitely not T. paraensis, but whatever it is, it's male.

After talking with Canth, apparently there ARE a lot of scorpion species in Mexico, but only one Tityus species.

If it's a Centruroides or Tityus (and some Centruroides have subacular prongs), you can differentiate the two by the number of rows of denticles on the fixed finger of the chela.

Centruroides = seven to nine rows

Tityus = 10 to 17 rows

Start of the key: http://wrbu.si.edu/scorpions/sc_key_NA/nakey01.html

If it's one of those two genera: http://wrbu.si.edu/scorpions/sc_key_NA/nakey02.html
