Euscorpius carpathicus pair


A pair of Euscorpius carpathicus, spotted and photographed during their night hunting of moths, on the wall of our hotel, in Tzoumerka mountains, Epirus region. The most common members belong to the E. carpathicus species complex, which makes up the subgenus Euscorpius. The venom of Euscorpius species is generally very weak, with effects similar to a mosquito bite. Some smaller specimens may not even be able to puncture the human skin with their stings. The pictured male and female, were almost total black in color and the smaller female scorpion was very gravid.
