You have both...Are yours juveniles and you are wanting to know the size differences between adults? Your question is kind of confusing and you said that you already have both of them...

I think he was wanting to know the adult size difference.

Dustin, I've got a dead C. exilicauda (forgot to put it in acetone) and I can photograph that next to the molt of an adult female jacksoni. I'm pretty sure the exilicauda was an adult male.

Sorry about the confusion. I guess the easy question is how big does the Jacksoni get. I know the C. Sculpturatus gets about 2 inches from chela to the start of the metasoma. I kind of figured they were about the same size in comparison.

C. sculpturatus get that big? Wow, mine must have been a juvenile.

I'll see if I can get a size comparison of my female jacksoni, then.

Here we go:

This, to the best of my knowledge, is an adult male Arizona bark scorpion (Centruroides sculpticauda Wink) "gertschi" morph, with a ruler for comparison (sorry about the flash; clearer picture at bottom):


Here is a set of Babycurus jacksoni molts with a ruler for comparison:


And here is the sixth-instar female next to her molt:


Labeled set of molts:


Final comparison: the dried Arizona bark beside a thawing female Centuroides hentzi:

I'll take some pics of my C.sculps. The metasomas are promenant like most centruroides. The female that just popped is only about 2 1/4 inches from chela to start of metasoma.
