Nice photograph! But this is definitely not Hadrurus arizonensis, nor any other Hadrurus. It is hard to say for sure, but this looks like either a Paruroctonus sp., related to Paruroctonus silvestrii, or a Vaejovis sp. related to Vaejovis bruneus. Your locality says Sonora, but the map shows Baja California Norte. Where was this spotted? And if I could enlarge the photo, I could probably identify it. =)
