call me stupid but I though longimanus had longer pedipalps? I originally thought it was longimanus but when i google imaged it i got loads of scorps with longer fingers

Brown telson would suggest H. longimanus -- remember, only the males have the huge chela in that species.

I was thinking "long claw" but didnt know the larger chela belonged only to the males so I thought I was wrong...sounds like it might have been right in my guess *SQUEEE*

Brown telson is one of the characteristics of an adult Longimanus. I have read somewhere (not sure where) that Spinifers have black telson. The most accurate defining characteristics would rather be granulation. Can you also take a close-up aerial shot of the carapace? That would really help.

Here's a couple of links that I often refer to for IDing Heterometrus (if you haven't found them already! - LOL).
1. Granulation
2. Kovarik's Review

And owh if I may add, my favourite Heterometrus would be the Laoticus!

I believe H. spinifer can have a black or brown telson . . . so it's probably one of the two. My H. longimanus is actually a lot more on the red side than the specimen in question, so that might lean my thinking more towards H. spinifer.

My H. laoticus only lasted a month. Sad

Telson color is NOT a good way to ID unless your trying to find out if it's emp. It doesnt look like a longimanus to me...and H. spinifers are have smooth telsons...NOT HAIRY.

i bet thats h. spinifer though!
telson really isn't the way to id the spp unless its an emp.
h. longi has a smooth pinchers and h. spinifer has bubbles in the pinchers!
base on the pic i bet it is a spinifer

H. laoticus is what I hope I have! will try to take ID pics! but dont want to jump on thread but mine have black telsons. chela is smooth but some "lines" along them.
But no "bubbles" on chela or head or anywhere.
