Excellent advice!check out Kovarik's "review of the genus heterometrus" key
Thanks!! Here's what I got --Excellent advice!
@BobBarley heres the addy. Bookmark it for future referencing.
Thank you, haha fingers crossed.Laoticus have no granulation...smooth. Not many Laoticus are being imported. Perersii are stockier with mild granulation are the most abundant in the trade lately. I have 2 female perersii wild caught that look just like yours....both came in gravid FYI.
Thanks, for the link man. I'll take a closer look at my specimen once it comes out again. In the case of it being petersii (seems likely), how do I know if the male's tooth on the movable finger is "enlarged"? Is there a reference picture you could point me towards? Or perhaps someone has a picture of either a female or male movable finger tooth? Thanks!I discussed how to distinguish between the four common Heterometrus species in the hobby in this thread: http://arachnoboards.com/threads/looking-into-heterometrus-spp.291375/page-2#post-2595099
Found it! http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t8804-h-spinifer-arrivalIf you do a Google search you should see a few examples of it. Otherwise I can post some pictures from the most recent ID key tomorrow.
