A friend of mine sent me these pictures of a scorpion found in Türkey, at the coast between the Aegean and the Mediterranean sea, under a rock. Any ideas on the ID?








Thanks,
Jan Philip.

edit: im now aware that i spelled the title somewhat wrong, sorry :p

I don't see a complete Lyre form on the carapace, so Mesobuthus species, possibly M.gibbosus....

Hi :) Yep, have'nt been on here for a long time now, nice to see you're still here. Back into Scorps and T's now :) I'll PM you later :)

I'll try to post some pics of the M. gibbosus i had here later today for comparison.
