The first one looks like an opistophthalmus sp.

I'm intrigued to find out what the third one is.

There is a species list from Namibia. I don't know if it's a complete list, but it's 64 species to look at. I'm a big rookie with African Species, so take this with a grain of salt, but I am GUESSING that:

2 is Hottentotta sp.
4 is a Uroplectes sp.

Nice looking scorpions. Thanks for sharing.

Ok so I may be three years late on this forum, but here's some possible answers you were looking for when you posted these pics!

Pic1 - Most likely Opistophthalmus carinatus
Pic2 - Either Uroplectes planimanus or Uroplectes carinatus
Pic3 - Also most likely Opistophthalmus carinatus (colour variation)
Pic4 - Looks like a freshly molted Uroplectes planimanus
pic5 - Some species of Uroplectes (your guess is as good as mine)
Pic6 - Looks like Uroplectes olivaceus, but could also be a Pseudolychas species...
These are just my best guesses. They may be entirely wrong Smile
