I am sure some of us will have a crack at it if we know the species Smile

I'd say Tityus spp. for the first one. As far as I know, there are no Hottentotta spp. in south america (presuming the location is correct). Looks from the picture it has a subaculear tubercle too.

I'm pretty sure that if the second one is from africe, then it's Pandinus spp., Heterometrus are not found in africa. I do agree it looks pretty similar to H. madraspatensis.

For the African pair, try to get a good look at the ventral side of the tibia.

Heterometrus have 4 trichobothria on ventral side of the tibia, while Pandinus have at least ten.

(Pictures obtained from: http://pandinus.net/scorpiones/dif/dif_pandinus_heterometrus.html)
Heterometrus:


Pandinus:


I have to say, I'm wondering if the scorps are actually from Africa, as they do look very similar to H. madraspatensis, H. fulvipes, or H. xanthopus, and I've never heard of a Pandinus species with yellow legs.

Cheers for the info, I'll get some better pictures and see how many I can count on them and post them up to see what you think.

No problem guys.

The only Pandinus I've seen with yellow legs is in pictures, mainly in the Scorpion files gallery.

I'll have to look around for that, I haven't seen the pic.
