I recently bought a het.spinifer and its telson is black. Is this right or is this another het species?

Will add pics soon.

Black color could be a Laoticus

I think H. spinifer is one of those species that can have a red or black telson.

I have a huge document on different Heterometrus sp, but it is in Norwegian.

What you could maybe do is go to ur nearest museum and ask for the contact details of an entomologist they should have a list of them, then get in touch with the entomologist to see if they can help, thats what im gonna do got the number for one the other day gonna fone him to see if he can identify my Heterometrus

Check a university before you check a museum. OSU's got a number of experts in their respective entomological fields, and most of them have offices in the same building.
