its not vaejovis anymore its hoffmanius
and i think its probably referring to spinigerus as they have the stripiest tails, but it could be anything as scorpion common names are inaccurate and dont really mean much

yeah, I think it is Hoffmanius spinigerus formerly known as V.spinegerus. I'm pretty sure those are the species commonly labeled "devil striped tailed scorpion" In pet shops.
