Got a few good pics of my Deathstalkers today. enjoy
It is indeed very rare to see one quite that bright. Most I have seen have substantialy darker dorsal markings. What sort of lighting are you using, Phil? Primarily your camera's flash?Originally posted by Kugellager
Your scorp has a really bright yellow color to it.
Theres virtually no darkening of the last segment of the metasoma, And all LQ I've seen have had a very distinct darkening (though I don't knwo its strength as an identifing character), I'd agree with the mis-identification suggestion.Phillip said:Got a few good pics of my Deathstalkers today. enjoy
I'm agree, it's a Buthus occitanus (segments of the metasoma of A.amoreuxi are a bite more thick, especially the fourth which looks like fourth segment of others Androctonus spp)errit said:To me it looks like a buthus occithanus or Androctonus amoreuxi instead of L. Quenquestriatus. is it a full grown specimen? The pincers seem to be bigger than Leiurus and the dark coloration in the last tail segment is missing.
