Definitely a spermatophore. In my experience they don't really fluoresce so much as just show up 'cause they're light-colored.

The A. australis could be gravid . . . it's pudging out and I can see the nerve cord. But I've never bred Androctonus before, so I can't say for sure.

the spermatophore definatley glows under uv. i thought it was a leg becuase it showed up good but it wasnt.


edit. i went to check it out again under uv light and now i really cant tell if it actually glows or just shines because it is white.

looks like a half eaten spermatophore to me. I know some species eat it to get rid of all traces of the smell etc.
Personally speaking if she was successfully mated get the male out of there! my lovely girl ate 2 males after mating with each one!

Some people have kept them together without a problem but I like to play safe. Kuma had his poss gravid female flat rock (hadogenes paucadins) eat the smaller member of the group.

Anyway... good luck Smile loads of info about rearing hadogenes species on the site Smile

one more note... jealous of the a.australis
