    Well, I don't know what I was thinking, it doesn't look like laoticus or petersii to me now but the chela(claws) look a little off for it to be imperator, or maybe it's a young one. It's that the claws don't have the high curving ridge like on adult imperators. Can you post a pic of the telson(stinger)? It would be a clue.

    Looks to be a female Pandinoides cavimanus...previously Pandinus cavimanus.

    Looks like something like an immature H. cyaneus to me, need more pics, and clear, ...stinger would help a lot. You might have something that's a little unusual to find in a store these days.
