PostSubject: 2 New Scorpions...Brachistosternus sternus and Caraboctonus sp   2/16/2011, 11:40 am

Hello all...got my valentines pressie today from my lovely fiancee Luke...(Thanx Babe xx)
How lucky am i , how many other girlz dya rekon got scorpions for valentine day...and they are awesome!

Ive taken a few pics, the Caraboctonus sp (keyserlinigi i think, is tiny only a couple of cm long) very cute but was hoping it would be slightly bigger, its gonna get a bit lost in its tank lol

And the Brachistosternus sternus i was quite shocked at because i was expecting it to be yellow coloured but this is quite a dark brown colour, but it is still absolutely gorgeous, got a lovely fat tail and some beautiful colouring...i have no idea if it is what its meant to be lol, ive struggled to find any info on these ...anyways heres the pics, will get more once they are settled, still need to get a few bits for enclosure like some nice flat slat or stone maybe a bit of fake greenery..

First up is the Brachistosternus sternus...











Next is the Caraboctonus sp

Sweet been waiting for these. I know that I wish I got scorpions for valentines day!

Wow that's really not what I expected from the Brachistosternus, like you say I was expecting a much lighter colour.

I've just had a thought (and it is only a thought, I've never seen a Brachistosternus sternus in person so I can't be sure) you know you said you ordered Bothriurus keyserlingi by accident, well I just looked on the site and he's put up large Bothriurus keyserlingi. Now to me your scorp looks very much like a scorpion I had a little while ago called Bothriurus coriaceus. Just got me thinking maybe he's sent you an adult B. keyserlingi by accident (it's not like it hasn't happened already like the Scorpio maurus thing). What you think, possible?

I dunno, it just looks totally different to the pic of Brachistosternus sternus.

The Caraboctonus sp. looks very keyserlingi to me, the palps now look more red in your pics. It's definitely a young one.

Anyway both lovely scorpions whatever the species! Very Happy

Well what happen with the order was Luke ordered 2 small b.keyserlingi but he was out of stock so we chose to have one Brachistosternus instead so don't really know lol I'll post it in ID section and see what peeps say it's a gorgeous scorp but was expecting a deserty yellow one Smile

*also it def says B,sternus on the tub where before when he got it wrong the tub was still correctly named to the species inside lol

Wow, that's a damn fine look scorp you've got there. Probably one of the best coloured ones I've seen.

Also, the Caraboctonus' tub looks like a chocolate I was eating before...

Quick update the B.sternus has got it's tall flat most of the time is extremely slow and sluggish and drags it's tail when moving Sad was hoping it was just the stress of transport but it has not improved, just drank a loads of water though.... I hope it perks up but right now it looks like it's dying Sad

I was also suprised they was shipped with a heat pack as i thought these could tolerate cold conditions... Quite how cold I don't know though Sad

Hm well it probably is the correct species then. Looking through pictures of Brachistosternus there are some of darker ones floating about, they seem to vary alot. Also I can't find one picture for Brachistosternus sternus mainly B. negrei, B. castroi etc. Just looks so different to the bugz picture, which is weird because the Caraboctonus sp. is the same one as in the pic.

Hope it's perked up this morning.

We think your actually correct jamie we have done some searching and he def seems more Bothriurus

Have just been on Virginia cheesemans site an she has a " Talca scorpion"
Bothriurus burmeisteri and it's exactly the same as ours!! So has he messed up our order again we have not said anything to him yet fund it hard to believe he could make this mistake

Also the little guy I still alive seems ok ATM another thing we noticed while searching the species was that in almost every picture they seemed to keep there tail relatively flat so maybe it's common with them I don't know

This is our scorp



Compared to this on her site



Pics a bit blurry prly best to go on the site lol

Congrats! The Brachistosternus looks like a Bothriurus sp. to me as well, I hope it still doing good!
The Caraboctonus sp. does appear different from keyserlingii.

Oh sorry didn't see it here first.

It's weird though because on the scorpion files there's only keyserlingi in Caraboctonus or is this not all the species.

If it's the gallery you are looking in it doesn't include all species

**edit I just went on and it does seem keyserlingi is the only species listed under Caraboctonus hmmm I'm now confused lol

Right ive just sent him an email lol, i kinda said im still happy with my purchase but just thought you should know lol didnt mention the c.keyserlingi bit though, but just found this ive taken from a file i found

The relationships of Caraboctonus and Hadruroides.The genus Caraboctonus contains
a single species, C. keyserlingi Pocock,
from central Chile, and Hadruroides contains
seven species from Peru and Ecuador,

heres the link to where i found it...
