unknown scorpion - Uroctonites huachuca

unknown scorpion - Uroctonites huachuca
Madera Canyon, Pima County, Arizona, USA
October 12, 2012
Size: 2.5 cm w/o tail
Seen at mid elevations of the canyon under a log.

Respectfully, this animal is actually Pseudouroctonus santarita. The chela have a very pronounced ridge in the middle, which is characteristic of P.santarita, whereas the chela of U.huachuca are very flat, just like the other three specimens in the set. I'm aware that this post was made before the official description, naming, or discovery of P.santarita. I just figured I'd respectfully point out that it could use review and update. This is a great publication btw. One of my go-to resources. Thank you for what you do, BugGuide.
