Bark scorpion

Centruroides sp.


An interesting specimen. The literature is whoely inadequate when it comes to resolving the Florida population of C.guanensis (C.keysi as a junior synonym) and C.hentzi. A revision has been in the works for several years now but while the morphological side is somewhat cleared up, the genetic results are still being compiled.
