given the coloration of the 5th segment I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and say it's a Pandinus imperator based on how common the species is

Chela looks to smooth for P.imp I think Het. sp. But It's really hard to give an exact ID without a better pic. I can say for sure it's not H. long, or H. spinifer.

My vote's for Heterometrus longimanus. The chela indicated without a doubt it's a Heterometrus sp., and H. longimanus can have the red telson. It also has fairly elongated chela, characteristic of that species.

Eddy, what makes you say it's not that?

Just basing my guess on Telson color. Mostly because the red telsons are rare and they usually present themselves as a brighter color. I saw the hair on the telson too and had the name of the species at the tip of my tounge but cant remember it now.

yeah, my initial thought was H. longimanus but I went for the default and threw out P. imperator. H. Longimanus or H. spinifer would make sense for availability in the region though

I also say Heterometrus, and that it seems to be a longimanus. If you can take some close and clear pictures of the carapace (head) the chela (claws) the brachium/femur (arms) and telson (stinger) we will be able to narrow it down, but a 100% ID of Hets is difficult with pictures alone.

Also as you go snapping more pics... take a good shot of the pectin area and we can tell if it's male or female.


Cheers,

*laughs about someone aboves comment*
Sounds like my playing who wants to be a "who wants to be a millionaire"

My guess is not Pandinus. But thats as far as I can go with the guessing. I was gonna say and maybe you suggested it with "correct terms" but a Vietnam forest scorpion....

Even from the blurry first picture its pretty clear thats not a imp Very Happy
hmm it might be a spinifer, but i still hold my ground at longimanus.. but Heterometrus can be a pain to Id down to speices

I think thats a subspecies of Het. longimanus um...borneensis I think. Which would make sense sense they are from the philipines that the origianal poster has one.

Mine was thought to be boriensis, or however that's spelled, but mine was imported from Malaysia.
