    It was one of the many vaejovids commonly and mistakenly sold as you guessed it, Vaejovis Texenisis. The sting was like hot pin and was never very painfull. However the knuckle joint close to the stung area was very sore for a few days, there was some minor swelling much like I get from a mosquito or horsefly bite. The itching however was the worst and lasted for three weeks getting less and less as it went along. In the first week however it felt like the entire swollen area was covered in blondi hairs. I managed to Id the species as Vaejovis Coahuilae

    Stung last night while catching free-hand. I picked it up, and when I wouldn't let it run off me, it stung. immediately painful, more wasp than bee, but pain was completely gone within 60 seconds with no problems after.
