Centruroides Sculpturatus would be where I put my money on. ANyway you have tweezers with gummies on. This means you know a hell of a lot more bout scorpions than me. So what is the catch? ;-)

No not to much knowledge here, just what i gathered from sites. I have tweezers with gummies because i dont want to harm them when i grab and uv light for my hunting at nights. i got them off some site i forget where.
I am having a hard time finding Desert Hairy's, not sure of the latin name for them. But im really just having fun searching for these and i have tons at my work. Since i work overnights its how i pass the time.

Anyways, im trying to figure out what to look for to pin point a baby desert hairy or adults. Besides the dark backs and stockier tails. Most of what i have come in contact with are roughly 1.5-3 inch and down. As well as babies. And some have dark backs like the last 2 pictures and some times they are slightly darker. and as far as the hairs on the bodies go seems like they all have them. is there any distinction on those?

Those are C. sculpturatus/exilicauda. Same thing. If you want to find desert hairy scorps or Hadrurus arizonensis, you will need a shovel. They burrow into the side of hills as far as twenty five feet sometimes. You might have luck blacklighting for them if you go find a hill with a bunch of oval or crescent shaped burrows in it, then go back at night. Females stay in their burrows most of the time, but males will wander to look for females. Also go on a night with as little moonlight as possible. Cloud cover or a new moon. The key is to find the burrows and look in the right places. If you find one burrow, chances are you'll find a lot of them in the same area.

Best of luck!

Look under bigger, flat rocks for desert hairy's. They get against a larger object the burrow far in the substrate under it, sometimes they just go under it so if you carefully lift a somewhat bigger rock up you might find em.

And yes those are C. sculps;
2nd pic- 2 females, 1 male
4th pic- male

Can't tell on the others.
