Out on a herping trip, a buddy spotted a large Het camping in a crevice of an old log. After frivolous excavation, we lost it in the undergrowth but found this instead.

This is my 1st encounter with a Chaerilid in the flesh and what a treasure trove; A mother with babies.

Which Chaerilus? Chaeri10
According to Ythier, there are 9 Chaerilid species found in this region:
C. agilis, C. cavernicola, C. chapmani, C. laevimanus, C. ojangureni, C. rectimanus, C. robinsoni, C. sejnai and C. tichyi
My boggle now is which one is it? Hope one of you guys can help me out here.

Regardless of what it is, I'm absolutely thrilled to find something other then Heterometrus or Liocheles.

I tweezer fed her a chopped mealworm. Yes I'm planning to raise the young to build up a captive colony. She is a bit bigger than your average Liocheles australasiae.

was she in the same sort of place you would find a heterometrus? if they are that small wouldnt they be preyed on by the larger species? that would be why you dont see them?

The Het probably made a burrow underneath the log. We had to pry open several chunks of it. That's how we found her

looks like C.truncatus but it's not listed in your 9. It's not rectimanus I had a dealer in the ur neck send me some a few years back (which i killed by the way Sad ). I guess that dosnt help but if I can find my contact still I might be able to help let me email him.

Lovely babies. I really hope to see a good percentage of them grow up to become adults and breed, Alex. But I guess when it's you keeping them, there's not much of a worry. I bet your passion for these bugs will fuel you through feeding and sustaining them with ease man.

Good luck to more moults!

Hey Alex, this scorpie is such a gem Alex. And you know it. Razz

I don't know if you have found this already. I found some literature on two new species of Chaerilus from Malaysia, by Kovarik published by Euscorpius quite recently. Here's the hotlink -

Two New Species of the Genus Chaerilus Simon, 1877 from Malaysia (Scorpiones: Chaerilidae) František Kovařík

My personal guess is it's a Chaerilus rectimanus. Tell me what's missing from this pic and perhaps we could really rule that guess out. C. rectimanus (male?)
