It's a Hadogenes paucidens. There are a couple of pictures of one in my images section.

Just out of curiousity, how can one tell the difference between troglodytes and paucidens? The main reason I ask is because my LPS has a "flat rock scorpion" and I know it is of the genus Hadogenes but not sure the exact species. I really hate when they use common names.

I thought "Flat Rock" species are generally hard to ID.
There are many species in the Euscorpiidae family and from pictures they all look the same to me.

I too would like some clarification or guidance on how to tell the differences between theses species.

H. paucidens has the yellow stripes, while H. troglodytes is a solid brown or grey.

I wish I could help you with that, but I'll let someone with more experience chime in. Most of them look the same to me too.

Hadogenes = Family Hemiscorpiidae

Oops, Bam, wrong family ;) Forget the Euscorpiidae.......now it should be lot less difficult. It would take me too much time to explain what you guys are asking for, but again, a lot can be found on the net.

For the difference between H.troglodytes and H.paucidens, listen to Obelisk ;) The differences are obvious, the former species lacks the yellowish greenish coloration and the stripes on the tergites.

cheers, Michiel
