    I bought this girl today labeled as, you guessed it.. Asian Forest Scorpion. I'm guessing she's probably some Heterometerous species so I'm hoping you guys can further help me out.

    Most likely good ol petersii. Most common heterometrus sp in the current hobby. Can pretty much find then anywhere and everywhere for a few dollars

    I've gotten both petersii and longimanus from this pet place in the past. I just don't know how to tell the difference between the two lol.

    Most of what was sold as "longimanus" and "spinifer" was actually just petersii. 90%of the AFS in the US hobby is petersii just miss labeled by local shops who have no idea how to I'd any of it. But @Collin Clary can Confirm ID
