PostSubject: scorpion ID help   2/12/2013, 1:47 am

hi all just joined an first post, have got some good information from this forum while researching other thing's recently. im after some help identifying a scorpion, i recently bought a friend's scorpion collection one of them he told me was h.longimanus which it is not as the chelae is the wrong shape/size.
it's a male and i was thinking it may be h.swammerdami but i emailed these pic's to a friend who study's scorpion's an he says it look's pandinus from the pic's.
the chelae shape/granulation look's similar to my young imperator's but the granulation is more pronounced than on my huge imperator
what do you think?





cheer's chris

A 6" adult P. imperator is pretty much a common/average size.
