PostSubject: First Scorp. Heterometrus sp?   8/5/2011, 2:50 pm

Hey guys I'm Sam and I'm completely new to this forum.

I got my first Scorp today and I would like to ID it if at all possible. I was actually directed here by a member who said you guys are pretty good at IDing Scorps, which does make a lot of sense lol.

All I know is that its a Heterometrus and its a confirmed female.

So here come the pics:






So there she is.

Thanks for any help Smile

I actually think i've identified it through research lol.

Due to the black telson and that there appears to be no granulation on the prosoma I've narrowed it down to a H.laoticus.

If anyone can find doubt in this please say

laoticus is not the only one with black telson and no granulation on the chelae.
It could be H. petersii. I have yet to get a confirmation on mine

The prosoma of the laoticus is smoother than that of the petersii.

It's 99% laoticus, petersii usually turn a green color when pics are taken of them with a flash and do have granulation on the carapace whereas laoticus never have granulation there.

Thanks for all the help and the warm welcome. I'm pretty happy with her and it helps that I know what species she is.

Does anyone know where I can find scientific papers on Heterometrus? I was told Couzin had written a good one?
