Tbh I dont think its O. walberghi. I dont know much about these species and looks of scorpions, but i googled them and they are very light coloured. These are black or something is wrong with lighting...

Cant help you much further though. Where is it from? What is its size? Male/Female? etc...

Very hard to just say what it is based on pictures alone. I wish I could help.

hi, yeah thats exactly what i did and noticed it was very dark compaired to the pics i found!
i look the pic with a flash and its a pretty good likeness to how it looks in the flesh.
i got it from a mate, its around the 3" mark and i dont know if its male or female

Isn't a tri color. I have two of those. Looks like a flat rock to me. Still a VERY nice scorpion and one I hope to add to my collection soon. =)

Not a, Hadogenes troglodytes, but a Hadogenes paucidens. http://www.lotsalegs.tenczar.net/Hadogenes/Hadogenes.htm

I could be wrong though, because it doesn't have the yellow markings. Still leaning towards some type of Flat Rock however. Wink
