Hi,

This was sold to me as  Parabuthus tranvaalicus
but when I showed it to a friend of mine, he said it does not look like a Parabuthus tranvaalicus.

Here is the recent picture, (phone camera)

Are there any distinct features for a Parabuthus tranvaalicus  scorpling?

thanks

Hey.
At first glance, it does resemble a P. transvaalicus. I have one since 2nd instar and it looks pretty much the same. However this is not conclusive. 

Just refer to the following images of P. transvaalicus by GS for further comparison

Agree with the folks above. That should be a Parabuthus transvaalicus. Though some species e.g. Parabuthus villosus do have resembling young (as compared to P.trans)... but that could be a challenge to differentiate them at their early instar.

Hi Pugrit,

Thanks for the update. Looking great! Look at that FAT tail!

You  ID'ed the sex by observing the presence of "tooths" on the basal middle lamella?

just a visual comparison of chela from a p.trans from local dealer which was indicated as male. i know its not conclusive but i cannot risk taking out the old exoskeleton yet because i only have a 4 inch tweezers used for feeding/dropping crickets/superworms. it looks like it can pretty much sting me with just a mere 4 inch gap. the little fella grew so much, i need longer tweezers now,better safe than sorry
