Found in Barstow CA. Hadrurus? Paruroctanus ?
Really? Dang i was leaning furthest away from that option
Surest way to distinguish it from S mesaensis is look at the prominent "hairs" on the tail. The claws probably threw you off as they can be more bulbous sometimes. I had to look twice.Cool find.
Agreed. H. arizonensis
Hadrurus sp. --> i thought arizonensis are more dark on mesosoma!?
this is a juvenile arizonensis.
the intraocular crescent is how you ID them, not their overall color. they are polymorphic, with dark individuals and very pallid individuals.
That's cool. I never knew H.arizonensis was polymorphic. Since I hadn't searched it up yet, what is the intraocular crescent?
the intraocular crescent is the light part on the 'nose', which is diagnostic in identifying hadrurus species.
@Smokehound714 my brotha i need your expertise here again
