How do you tell the difference between L.q and L.q hebreus? Is the subspecies much different?

Difference between subspecies

The one I have is ordered from Glades Herps in Florida. They told me it was the LQ (or LQQ), not the Hebreus. This one has more of a golden brown instead of the pale yellow on the tail and pincers. Furthermore, the black is not prominent on the pincers. It is pretty much the golden brown color.

I got L.q and L.q.h. I didn't really see any big difference except for the color and their chela. L.q have longer and thinner Chela. Atleast that's what it looks like to me.

The Androctonus is and subadult or adult specimen. Scorpions (especially buthids) age in different instars and not always in fixed numbers. So regardless of what instar your specimen is, by the looks of the metasoma and the size in comparison with other items in the picture, I think it is at least a subadult.
Can't really tell it in case of the Leiurus.....
