    It´s possibly downloadable for free at the Journal´s homepage.

    o.k., I know...I know...I can't i.d. visually...but the little guy just molted and from other pics it looks like C. nigrimanus, not the C. margaritatus I though it was...what do you think?
    and here's a pic of my C. exilicauda male, the female was hiding and wouldn't come out...
    and last one is my little c. exilicauda gertschi scorpling...

    if it is a bark scorpion, the only thing I can think of is C. Hentzi. The tail isnt in the picture, but does it have a subnacular(sp?) on its telson? it looks like a small second sting. That might give an indication.

    if its not (which is also possible I'm sure), it could be a Vaejovid (sp?) Someone with a better knowledge could possibly narrow it down to a family group. Some more detailed pics of the tail and such might help, some macro shots.

    But I dont think its a Vittatus, it seems too dark, and there is no indication of the triangular mask.

    Otherwise, I don't have a clue :) good luck though. I'm sure it'll bring you hours of joy regardless.

    yeah, a full picture would help
    my first thought yesterday was that it was a Vaejovid...

    have they been collected in the States? If so, it should be C. hentzi, I guess.
