i couldbe wrong i think this should be moved to the Emperor Zone forum

i do believe it's the H. longimanus is the biggest of the heterometrus genus

the H. swammeridami is the bigger one than the Emp.

being more robust, i would have no guess on that one

My female H. longimanus dwarfs my P. imperator, and I've heard that H. swammerdami is slightly larger.

^That's P. cavimanus. Same genus, different species.

Venom, is that a forest-morph emperor?

So cavimanus is larger then imperator? So why imperator called imperator?
Heterometrus how I see lighter, not so robust. But very nice scorpions, fo exemple - longimanus.

As far as I know, P. imperator is larger than P. cavimanus -- but my cavimanus are immature so I can't make a direct comparison myself.

And as for the name . . . that's what Koch felt like calling it back in 1841. Razz

yeah I think the swammerdami is the "biggest" scorp, but I would say the "bulkiest" scorp is pandinus imperator. but I dunno.... some hets i've seen are huge...
