Nope, but usually the first thing we have to ascertain is locality. Identification relies heavily on region, so please include locality when requesting identification...

But this one is indeed Liocheles australasiae

Chill out guys... hehehe this is what identification is all about... even the experts get it wrong most of the time... in fact most real experts will say they can determine the genus... whereas species verification can only be conducted by taking the specimen in question to the museum that has a preserved holotype specimen which defines the characteristic properties of the species, proportions of apendages, granultaion, trichiobothrial examination, and even sometimes examining structures so small that they are seen through an electron microscope. before they can truly say for sure...

so its good practice, everyone makes mistakes, especially if you've only seen the specimen in pictures and don't know where its from... Again I stress locality to be very crucial to accurate identification... pls divulge the location! otherwise sometimes... especially if it's Heterometrus... or worst some some HOT butihd stowed away in imported vegetable produce, with the toxicity still undetermined...

If it is purchased at a store then nevermind, but I see request for Identification of "this scorpions I found" countless number of times, and the one thing most people never do is state where its from or how they got/found/caught/ have it fall out of the sky on to the desktop....

Please, please, mention locality, its not just so we can play 'who gets to ID it correctly first'... when it comes to scorpions in particular or snakes... man it could mean your life!... or chances are you're in for a very tough ride if you get stung by a scorpion species you can't identify...

I think that's not too hard to ask considering the grounds on why locality is so important...

the family Buthidae comprises of the largest number of scorpion species distributed across the globe. this family contains, all the HOTS, Androctonus, Leiurus, Buthus, Tityus, all of which either have venom that can be excruciating at the least if not deadly...

if the experts can make mistakes, the more so are we... so the LOCALITY does help! alot... thank you
