its an adult due to telson colour, so not a het lonigmanus scorpling. Ive heard they CAN have dark telsons...but also the body isnt the right "shape" and also the size guide...also
its more flat.

Probably totally wrong. Looks like Iomachus Politus to me! But im thinking MAYBE Nebo hierichonticus but the colouring isnt correct for the legs (not that colour always gives an ID)MAYBE..Euscorpius italicus.

Are you sure it's from Asia? It looks almost like a Euscorpis sp.

Also, how big is a 5-kronor piece?

I have asked the girl who has it for more pix and info

a 5 krona is 28mm in diameter...

maybe a Euscorpis, perhaps the cargo was in other country on itīs way...

proably E.italicus but you cant Id euscorpius from pictures because you will need to get them under a microscope to proably id them.. pictures of the prosoma and if possible the underside of the scorpion whould be a really big help to place it into the right family..

i agree its definitely not from the scorpionindae family. It's a euroscorpius but these guys can be tough to ID from pics and what i've heard from most people is that the best tool for ID'ing without a specimen to examine is locality information.

But if they are planning on keeping that scorp they better treat that really heavy mite infection it got..
