We believe we have identified your Scorpion as Centruroides guanensis thanks to the Scorpion Files site where it states that the distribution is: “USA (Florida), Caribbean (Bahamas, Cuba).” Regarding the sting, the site states: “No available data. From Dr. Rolando Teruel’s personal experience: mild venom, sharp painful sting with aftereffects lasting for 1-5 hrs.” According to Caribbean Medical News: “people do not usually die from scorpion stings” but there is information regarding the death of a two year old child.
