I have heard of adult Hoffmannius spinigerus being kept communally.

Scorpio maurus are often thought of as communal species due to them sometimes being found in 'colonys' in the wild but in reality they don't like to share enclosures. When I tried it I very quickly ended up with one fat scorpion. With a large enclosure and luck you may have some success keeping them together.

Other than that there isn't really any non- Buthidae arid/desert scorpions that will live together that I can think of.

Anyone else??

thanks for the reply callum. i'll look into the Hoffmannius spinigerus. only real reason was that i have my haddy in a pretty large tank that is to big for it. and want a communal species. i could always reuse the substrate in some small tanks and use it for a few pandinus emperator's. i was only thinking about like 2-3 as its still only like a 60-45-45cm exo terra.
