sexing Hadrurus arizonensis

    As always, It is very hard to sex scorpions. After a while though, I have decided that my Hadrurus a. pallidus is a female judging by the pectine count, however, females usually have pectines bent outwards slightly where as my one has straight pectines. Can anyone help me confirm if I'm right or not?
    Here is the link to where I got most of my information on sexing scorpions from:

    H .a.pallidus are notoriously difficult to sex because of the overlapping pectine tooth count and the genital opercula looking very similar, however I would say yours is female. ( 26 and 28 )
