I think that it's impossible to make a top five with species... it's much better with genus...

I would make top three:

Androctonus sp. , Tityus sp. and Rhopalurus... I love buthids!

Out of the specimens that I have...

1. Babycurus jacksoni
2. Leiurus quinquestriatus
3. Lychas mucronatus
4. Hadrurus spadix
5. Heterometrus spinifer (my first!)

But if it's expanded to species that I do not have...

1. Tityus paraensis (or any Tityus, really)
2. Parabuthus transvaalicus
3. Centruroides bicolor
4. Androctonus bicolor
5. Pandinus smithi

Though really, there are many more species that I could add to both lists...

This seems a popular thread in the T forum, so I thought I might try it here. If you could only have five scorpions, what would they be?

Mine would be, in no particular order:

1] Liocheles australensis
2] Parabuthis transvaalicus
3] Heterometrus spinifer
4] Centruroides gracilis
5] Tityus serrulatus

So if anyone has a lead on L.australensis or T.serrulatus, I'd be happy to hear them. :)

Cheers,
Dave
Well Dave I've just stumbled across this thread and as you know I don't have much more than 5, but here goes.

Centruroides gracilis
Androctonus australis
Androctonus crassicauda,mauritanicus,bicolor (one of the dark Andro's)
Babycurus jacksoni
Tityus falconensis

P.S. that means after this weekend I will only need A. australis and T. falconensis to complete my list.:D

Ohh and not to pick at your post, but I thought you had a thing for Hadogenes :? Also you probably already know this(as the initial post was a while ago), but Martin has T. serrulatus
