Very nice!

They look identical to my H. fulvipes from India.

Hi,

Actually they are from Germany ;) , but their origin is Pakistan. Really dunno, but If I am right India has strict rules of wild animal exporting.

India has strict wildlife rules that's true. When I said from India, I meant the species are found in India. I got mine from a collector in UK.

Here's a picture

Hi Alakdan,

Nice scorp, looks darker brown as mine for me. This is probably because of the different location. As I know xanthopus lives in Pakistan and India too. ;)

I think I was reading about the different between the two species and the easiest way is to know the collection origin. I'll post the link if I remember where it was.
