Stumped me. I'm guessing those spurs coming off the sides of the metasomal segments would help you to classify though. That seems like a pretty define feature to some species and/or genus.

I'm super stumped too. I can find individuals with similar coloring but then the chela are completely the wrong shape and size. The light brachium into the dark chela. Then the dark metasoma into the light telson. I wonder if this is a juvenile coloration that it will molt out of?

Good call. I honestly forgot that Hadrurus pinteri existed until you mentioned it. I was inclined to think Hadrurus due to the shape, size, etc of that median eye, but I didn't want to point in any direction unless I was totally sure.
