    i just acquired three I2 H. longimanus slings from a friend and i would like to verify/confirm the ID if indeed they are H. longimanus. my friend needs verification too before he could sell the babies. please check out the pics of the adult pair (parents of my scorplings). your help would be highly appreciated. :worship:
    first pic is the female...

    A little photoshop work might make it a little easier for someone else (George) to ID

    nice try Fluid :D

    cant say scientifically, but IME the male doesnt look like a spinifer, though there is still a chance

    looks kinda longimanus to me though... still trying to stiudy thej heterometrus papers for an easy way to diff them though :( so i can really say but looks very much like a longi to me through my recent researches :?
     
  6. laocticus maybe...

    i can see that longimanus was quite rare on the hobby.

    definately not a laotics. the only simplest wat is to compare the ration of the claws to the length of the body. but i fptgptten the ration.. leyt me digg as lil..

    Hey

    according to the old revision (couzijn) there were many Longimanus subspecies, all of them different. it is totally unclear in Kovaricks version.. so IME you should try to get hold of the older revision, its much more through.

    here are some pics of a subadult H. longimanus borneensis (Borneo) of mine (probably male)
    it also nearly stung me.. angry bastard...

  9. there is still no definite ID so far. i hope to hear more from you guys, esp. those who are specialised on Heterometrus. thanks G. Carnell, Scorpfanatic, Fluid Filter and Kahoy...

    here are some of Couzijns work.. its useful as a second oppinion:

    Scanned from "Revision of the genus Heterometrus"

    pages 88-97
    subgenus Heterometrus (= laoticus/petersii/spinifer/longimanus)

    see the granulation patterns, from my specimens, it seems to work, though im sure Kovarick must have had a reason to remove them from the ID work..
