Beautiful pictures and species. So Heterometrus swammerdami is Gigantometrus now? I have still not fully read the paper on the most recent Heterometrus revision😅.

Yes, there were other changes but I don't remember them right now. I'll tag you later with them.
Gigantometrus sounds way better for this species, though. Lol.

Yeah, I really want to read the paper but keep procrastinating haha, I believe it’s quite a long one.
Gigantometrus is very fitting for them, and it sounds pretty badass.
I have a subadult pair of them, can’t wait for them to mature!

So, here the other changes, I think there were others, but I need to check in the article again.

Pandinus dictator -> Pandinopsis dictator
Pandinus viatoris -> Pandipalpus viatoris
Heterometrus petersii -> Heterometrus silenus
Heterometrus madraspatensis -> Chersonesometrus madraspatensis
Heterometrus mysorensis -> Chersonesometrus tristis
Heterometrus swammerdami -> Gigantometrus swammerdami
Heterometrus cyaneus -> Javanimetrus cyaneus

I usually use a macro 100mm lens. For smaller subjects and/or more proximity, I add a raynox DCR-250 and/or one to three extension tubes to the lens. And for bigger subjects, I also use a 18-55mm, sometimes, I add these other equipments to it too.

And I agree about the Tityus, lol. They are stunning, indeed.

Amazing shots! Your P. spinigerus especially stuns me... I didn't know that they could be so colorful!
