Your English is fine, don't worry. :)

"hector" is a morph of A. australis. It has a little different range, possibly with some overlap, but I am unsure of this yet.

Pectinal counts are slightly different. Size is the same.

Color wise, the Hector is darker on the mesosoma (body), the chela (claws), and the end of the metasoma (tail).

Sorry if you already know what the body part names are, I don't know you yet and wanted to make sure you know.

Hope this helps!

hi,another quick question . which of morphs is the biggest? i seen some online picture , and the tail is so wide .from i top view you could only see it's tail ! i think that the aeneas morph ?because its black and glossy but, i might be wrong.

I have no idea, Androctonus is not really my thing....You can search google for a publication of Dr. Lourenco, just go type: Lourenco+Androctonus.....you can read short descriptions in that paper....
