What are the visual differences between the Sculpturatus and the Vittatus?

Centruroides sculpturatus have a uniform yellowish coloration, while C. vittatus are also yellowish in color, but have darker stripes or bands running down the mesosomal tergites.

However, there is a Centruroides sculpturatus "Gertschi" morph, which looks quite similar to C. vittatus.

Is there any other way to tell besides color?

heres a link that might help you see a comparison pic of a c. sculpturatus "Gertschi" morph and a c. vittaus http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t8311-news-scorps. scroll about two thirds of the way down and theres a pic of my two scorps side by side. from what i hear the best way to tell is that the c. vittaus has the dark triangle markings at head
