Great pics!!!

I really like your photos!! That C.marg has a nice large brood and the Centruroides thorellii is just plain awesome!!! I would really like to have them in my collection..Looks like I need to plan a trip to there.

Really nice pics!

I will be travelling through that part of the world myself soon (from Panama to Mexico) and am already looking forward to 'communing' with the various beasties of that region and just getting to see them on their home turf.

Any tips for Guatemala?

Thanks for the comments on my photos. It was the first trip I did with my Nikon D50. Much easier to use then my previous camera...I will try to post some South African photos from February. I took over 2000 scorpion photos on that trip....

The thelyphonid is Mayacentrum guatemalae mature male. Only a little over 1cm.

Yeah, it is one of the smallest, maybe the smallest. They are about the size of Thelyphonellus. There are 2 recently described species of Mayacentrum and one species from Mastigoproctus placed in Mayacentrum by Viquez and Armas, 2006. All of which are in Guatemala. We only got the one specimen though...The genus ranges from Nicaragua to Belize and is likely in Chiapas, Mexico.
