It's possible. Leiurus is a difficult genus to judge by color as they can range quite a bit.

Where did you get them from? And do you happen to know where these particular specimens originate?

Also there are no morphs or subspecies from the genus Leiurus. There was a large restructuring of the genus a few years back and a few subspecies were elevated to species.

90% sure it is Leiurus quinquestriatus.

The other species have only started becoming available in Europe with a few exports here and there. If you can get a clear picture of the 5th metasomal segment and dorsal shot of the carapace I might be able to help a bit more.

I agree with brandon. They, like many other scorpions, come in many different colorations, but that doesnt mean it is a particular morph.
