Vajeovis confusus? That's an absolute guess, but it definently looks like Vaejovidae to me... is it wild caught? If so, where.

You should get some better guesses throughout the day though. :)

look at the carapace. it is a buthid of somesort. also, it lacks the telson structure and 4th metasomal notch of a vaejovid. My best is going to be buthus occitanicus based off the well defined lyre shape on the carapace and overall shape/color. but there is a very good chance im off on that too.

Hi,

that´s Buthus for sure but impossible to tell the exact sp by those pics. Did you measure them from carapace to end of tail? It´s most likely a wc as Buthus spp are rarely sold in bigger instars cause most Buthus spp are growing pretty slowly for buthids.

the only reason that i say occitanicus is just based off the fact that it seems to be the most commonly encountered sp. in the hobby of that genus.

It is a buthus. Look at the lyreshaped carinae on the carapace....Probably occitanus. But since I am no expert on this genus, I can only tell it is a Buthus for sure.
