Haha I was wondering... They much smaller than I thought longimanus would be. Sad

Male, female, possibly male (not sure on the last one).

As said, definitely not H. longimanus.

I was looking at the operculum -- but that last one's too dark to tell clearly. Might be female, now that I think about it.

just been interested in this thread as i got a trio from the spidershop as well.
for me it's no hardship at all if these prove to be cyaneus, as i've been wanting to get some for ages.
i've been comparing mine to drawings in Keegan's Scorpions of Medical Importance, as he quite luckily has both scorps in there...the granulations on the carapace and pedipalps look more like cyaneus then longimanus, going by those drawings, the chelicerae and the trochanters of the pedipalps also look more like cyaneus too...i also noticed the granulations on the top of the last segment of the cauda also looked more like cyaneus...
am i looking in the right places?
are there other species that are similar to contend with as well?
i am just curious and wanting to learn more!

I always sex by the operculum these days (since I joined the SF anyway Very Happy ), seems to be more accurate Very Happy especially with a lot of species' pectinal tooth count overlapping

James, sorry mate I haven't had chance to look at that paper and compare it with the pictures I took of yours at the show! But it seems to be the general consensus that these are cyaneus
