The book shadowfoot mentioned is good. It has colour pictures and info. on 350 species. Plus, a large amount of information on biology, anatomy etc. etc. There is also a list of all known species (at the time of publish) and their country(s) of origin at the back.

Other than that, there is The Illustrated Catalogue of Scorpions. Part 1 (Kovarik). It only covers the subfamily Scorpioninae i.e. Pandinus, Heterometrus etc. http://www.factorioforums.com/scorpio/

And that's about it in terms of books that cover a lot of different species from around the world, and include pictures.

Both books are pretty expensve, but are certainly worth their money.

^^ That's the best book available on the captive care of scorpions. It has some great pictures and information on the more commonly kept species.

Yes, it has everything from a venom list to habitat requirements, gorgeous pictures and he keeps it really interesting.
As we say in Holland: Zeker een aanrader.

You can translate that roughly in A recommendation for sure!
