This was the largest scorpion I have seen in Florida and the first one I have seen since I started photographing insects. It was located about 100 yards from the ocean under sea grape leaf litter. Looking through the two types of scorpions that seem to be most common from Florida in the guide, it looks closest to Centruroides gracilis, but I am not sure.

Moved from Scorpions.

Big beautiful male, too!

All I see up here in VA are the tiny and very beautiful Psuedoscorpions.
