Hi Kari, this Scorpion was spotted in Sierra de Juárez, Ensenada, Baja California, thanks for your comment and the id. info !!

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. =)
