Hey,

I'm fairly certain these are A. crassicauda. :)


Cheers,
Ryan

Hey,

I'm just judging by the general color, the mauritanicus I've seen have all been more of a matte grey color. Of course color is not too great of an indicator. ;)


Cheers,
Ryan

This is A. crassicauda, check the ventral side of the telson vesicle for 3 series of big granules. you can also check the keels on the last metasomal segment.
