Just need a second opinion. Im pretty sure this is Parabuthus planicauda, but the colouring is putting me off from the usually lighter coloured ones I find. Can even be one of the Uroplectes spp, but Im not so sure about that.
This is the only photo I received.

Too early to tell, without the breeders info no one can give you a positive ID yet. I'm guessing 3i?

This is a WC, so no breeder info.

S.O.L. then until a few more molts at least then, sorry.
I could personally give you about 15 species this photo matches off the top of my head without looking through archives which would probably come up with many many more. There's only a few species of scorpion easily identifiable from early instar like L. quinquistriatus for instance. Can tell those from 2i.
But something like this? Naw, best anyone could do is get you within maybe 3 or 4 genus' if they are lucky.

So repost in about 4 months in my opinion, unless someone on here has some kind of kickass computer that can digitally enhance and xray the thing with in depth knowledge of species identification that can chime in... or someone could say i'm full of it and chime in with a guess asserted as probable ID, but like I said, this early in development it's just a guess educated or otherwise.

Sorry bout that Sad

*edit*
A location of the catch would narrow it down though.
