Wood Scorpion

Liocheles australasiae


A tiny nocturnal scorpion that usually hides inside gaps and crevices exposing only their pincers. 5mm in length, not including the tails. Will glow under UV light. They are very common and adaptable in a range of habitats.


Inside gaps between woods in a building in Tawau Hills Park.


>>Map accuracy: 5m diameter. Found it wondering out from its shelter during the day, which is a rare sight as most of them are found hiding.
