Hey everyone, Just recently got it IDed as a H. Laoticus. I looked through the info on how to sex and think it's a male but would rather have someone with experience have the final say. Here's the pics I got. Let me know if others are needed.

It might be a female. But don't listen to me, I've only had 2 scorpions.

Looks male to me but I'm not 100 on this one. If this was Who Wants to be a Millionaire I'd go with male final answer.

I originally thought female to. The operculum looks oval to me vs heart shape and the pectines look long. So I switched to male. But i can kinda see the heart shape now. Idunno. Can we get a more focused shot? I think I'm leaning female now.

I say female from the shape of the operculum and size of the pectines...

But with all the controversy, try to get a clear pic of the operculum. (Doesn't need to be ultra close up, just clear.) The female's operculum will have a small split towards the end facing the metasoma, while the male's will be in one piece. (Not to be confused with the vertical line on the operculum, which is visible in both species.)

I agree,

The shape of the operculum is definitely heart shaped and not oval like a male.
I would say female.
