Anyone know what kinda species this is?

My guess was either a species of Bark or Devil Scorpion.

Centruroides sp., either C. margaritatus "bicolor morph" or C. bicolor.

Moved to ID section.

Why's that, Kejser? I didn't think all C. margaritatus had coloration so similar to C. bicolor.

C.Chiapanensis
Nah, no its not.
I guess its a margaritus. or the Bicolor Marg morph
I forgot what was the ID, something about the last segment before the tail being a diff. color.

best guess is maragritatus which has several different color forms but NO valid subspecies. but to be honest its not always easy to tell from pics. it does not look like bicolor to me based off of the shape and dentition of the chelae. the hard part about it is that there really are hardly any confirmed pics of C bicolor to go off of so its difficult to be able to ID without a key, and the only Centruroides key published is in dire need of revision to the point of being useless when it comes to certain species
