I know the first one is a Centruroides vittatus. No clue on the others. Awesome finds!

Ft Stockton is in W Tx, on I10.

Here is a link to a map showing the location of Ft Stockton.

Ok, thanks. Actually there is a very good chance they are v. coahuilae. They are all over New Mexico and so if its on the West side of Texas, theres a good chance that is what it is. Great pick-ups.

There is a definite possibility of them being V. coahuilae, or possibly V. russeli. Can you get better pics?

The first and third of the Vaejovids look like coahuilae to me -- that middle one has interesting colouration, though. Doesn't mean it isn't coahuilae, as I've seen some variation within that species .. but definitely worth some closer pics.

Cheers,
Dave

Oh, it could even be V. crassimanus...

But better pictures would help....
