      Question H longimanus Sex

      Hey All,

      This is my only scorpion and my first molt. I've been searching and reading about how to determine a scorpions sex and I just can't seem to get it. Lol.
      Anyway, my scorpion molted and that's the only time I've seen it's underside, so can anyone help me determine it's sex? I just want to know for my record.
      Thanks!

      Congrats on your new Heterometrus tisha! I just acquired a couple females that I determined to be H. petersii. If you Google sexing Heterometrus and check the images it is quite easy to sex them. They can be sexed just like Pandinus also. You need a loupe of 10X or stronger. Put your scorp in a clear deli as it's easier to determine on a live specimen. Yours may not be large enough yet but do try! That is how I learned

      Thanks! I'll try that.


      Edit:
      I think I got the sexing, at least for this Genus. Based on what I've read, the Genital Operculum for males are more oval than females which are pointed.
      I've always read to look for the shape of the pectines which confuses me because I don't have any other scorps to compare to.

      Based on what I know of the operculum, that one looks more pointed. I would call male.

      Still, give it a few more molts to know for sure.

      You've got it tisha! You are correct in saying that males have a more oval operculum, males also have the point more toward the head while females are more heart shaped with a rounder tip that has a slight separation (almost like a heart) facing the tail end.
