During my trip to N Tanzania Nov 3 – 23 (mentioned before) I was shown a scorpion in Isoitok Research Area NW of Arusha in N Tanzania Nov 6. One of the local people lookeed it up for me under a little stone in a very stony area (probably Reg-habitat)
Signature: slit

Dear Slit,
We do not feel confident with committing to a definite species, but this does look very much like Parabuthus pallidus that is pictured on The Scorpion Files where it states “Distribution:  Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania).”
