Nice package! Some nice species, from Egypt I think. That "Buthus occitanus" (picture 2) is in fact a Leiurus quinquestriatus, B.occitanus does not have a dark or black metasomal segment V......So be very, very carefull with that scorpion!

Regards, Michiel

Not trying to be critical but I believe it is Buthacus leptochelys. Other than that though, you got some really nice species! (And yes, I would have to say that Buthus occitanus is really Leiurus quinquestraitus).

The third picture down is infact Leptochelys, the second picture is Leiurus quinquestriatus not Occitanus at all.

Indeed Buthacus, didn't even see that, it was early this morning.....heheheh, there is no Buthus leptochelys....the exporter probably gave it that name. ....
