Is there someone know this species?
Centruroides exilicauda I think. Pretty common from around Riverside on east and south into Mexico.
Looks more like a Paruroctonus (possibly silvestrii) to me, as C. exilicauda is a species found in Baja California, and is certainly not common anywhere in California (USA) other than maybe the most extreme south of the state.
Hope this helps,
Definitely one of the vaejovids, I'd say Paruroctonus as well, though I admit I'm not great at IDing that family.
We don’t have Centruroides here really. They could possibly be found near the boarder with Arizona though.
Paruroctonus silvestrii or similar member of the genus.
I saw several that looked like the OP near UCR, Palm Springs and on south to the Salton Sea.
I thought paruroctonus had a signature blackish back.
Stahnkeus subtillimanus or possibly Serradigitus joshuaensis.
Not Paruroctonus as it has a notch at the anterior portion of the carapace. Looks like it could be a juvenile Paravaejovis puritanus.
Looks P. puritans to me
