I have been using the search option but unsuccesful, so posting the question

What is the largest desert scorpion? Is it the Hadrurus arizonensis or is the P villosus or any other larger?

Thanks

Parabuthus villosus is the biggest at 18cm, H.arizonensis is 14cm. Parabuthus granulatus reaches 16cm and P.transvaalicus attains a size of 15cm. These are the biggest I know of.

Females can achieve 8i but not males.
Parabuthus raudus also reaches 16cm and Androctonus mauritanicus can also get pretty big.
