Hi all, nice site you have here.
Right, straight into it...
Mate has this scorpion that was sold as Euscorpius flavicaudatus.
He thinks it's too big - not sure on size as all I've seen are these pics.
Any ideas on the species please?











Cheers folks.

It doesn't look like Euscorpius flavicaudis as seen here: http://flavicaudis.altervista.org/
The claws are much too smooth to be your friend's.
Do you know where he got it from, as in the country? That can help us narrow down the list.

Here's a link from the scorpion files for you to look at pics: http://www.ntnu.no/ub/scorpion-files/gallery.php
Simply look under Euscorpiidae which is located at a little over half the page.

Cheers for that.
When I first aw the pics I thought it was some Liocheles species. What do you think?
It actually belongs to Bristol Zoo. My mate is Assistant Curator of Inverts there. They got it as Euscorpius flavicaudis so it's been that ever since. They got it as a tiny scorpling. I've asked mate for any other info he can give.
Cheers folks

I need a really clear picture of the underside of the scorpion, where the pectines are placed.. the whole underside of the scorpion would be nice, but if i had to guess now it, my guess would be Liocheles sp. i highly doubt that this is a Euscorpius

manus is shaped differntly, carapace is allso wrong.. so it highly doubt it.. looks alot more like Liocheles

Right, thanks for this.
I've sent him a message asking for the pics, in the meantime he has sent me a couple more pics for scale.
It may also be worth noting that he says the scorpion is quite an aggressive little thing, and was stinging anything that went near it.






There is no record of where it came from but someone seems to remember that it was from a private collection so no real help there.
Cheers again.
