There may be slight variations from both sexes, e.g. there can be a few types of "Oval-shaped" Genital Operculum of males but the distinguishing pointed tips of the female's "Heart-shaped" Genital Operculum should be a clear indicator on separating females from males.

I've update the guide for the picture illustration.

Are the operculum fully formed from birth? I've wondered how soon young scorpions can be accurately sexed. Is it just a matter of waiting until the area is large enough to be able to see it clearly?

A good question wodesorel Smile

Usually, they can be easily sexed from 4.instar onwards (Perhaps due to the limitation to my close-up lens to make it sooner)

I'll keep this thread updated with my findings Smile

Can someone help me id and maybe sex my scorps please and thank you? Smile

I'm thinking this might be a male but I'm really new to this hobby so I have no idea

and I'm thinking this might be a female? It was listed and sold to me as a female, but I have no true idea.

same scorp but a clearer view... I hope  scratch 


and this is a pic of the two of them side by side. Do you think they may be P. Imperatus or Asian Forest?



Thanks so much for all your help Smile Namaste
