I believe it is a request to ID a possible Hadrurus arizonensis, but the poster forgot to attach a picture.

I have done similar things when trying to email people important documents. Razz

it coul be but for it to be C.Vittatus there would have to be some serious colour fading for the mask to end up such an orangey colour, if you can call that a mask lol doesnt look very bandit like

I really doubt it's a Centruroides sp. -- if it came preserved, odds are that it's M. martensii. They seem to be most popular for use in souvenirs like that.

If you had it when it was alive, it could be something else, but we'd need either a much better photo of it now or a "before" photo to ID it for sure.
