    width, girth etc. Just look at some of the female Tityus in this thread. The females are a thicker build. Of course the males are usually thin just as they are many other species out there

    since you mentioned dimorphisms, this seems just as good a thread as any to ask this, but is there any validity to reports of isolated wild populations of T. serrulatus containing both males and females? i have heard of this, but never concretely.

    I have heard of this too however the ones in captivity are of the parthenogenic kind thank God.
    Anyway, Tom would probably be the one to ask on this subject since he knows Tityus spp very well.

    Yes isolated sexual populations do exist:

    LOURENÇO W.R. & CLOUDSLEY-THOMPSON J.L., 1999, Discovery of a sexual population of Tityus serrulatus. One of the morphs within the complex Tityus stigmurus (Scorpiones, Buthidae), J. Arachnol., 27, 154-158

    Hello!
    thanks first!
    yes he is a male and yes i have one female, i hope she is gravid and i will get soon some babies.
    the ground is on part of the tank, and it is one part ceramist and one part vermiculite to keep one half very wet.
