i got this pic from another forum. of course i asked permission to do so and i'd like to get an ID for it since the one who took is more a frog and snake expert and had no idea what it is as well.

thanks in advance!

I was more inclined to think Uroplectes, mainly olivaceus at first glance. Unfortunately, upon further inspection of the photograph there are definitely some morphological features that differ, mainly the concentration of setae on the metasoma. Hopefully someone else chimes in and gets it right.

so apparently it is from the uroplectes genus and a pic from uroplectes.com shows a similar looking scorp. too bad there's no sp name

I was going with U.olivaceus or U.flavoviridis but thr setae does seem out of place...
