Diplocentrus sp. in its terrarium
Diplocentrus sp. in its terrarium

We collected this Diplocentrus species in a canyon (barranca) near Chavarillo, Veracruz, Mexico, see: Scorpions and Toucans near Chavarillo.

This animal was found under a big log. The terrarium matches the original habitat as close as possible, and pieces of dead wood are added to match the original hiding place of this scorpion.

Based on some pictures and scans of the scorpion, Oscar F. Francke, identified this species as an adult female Diplocentrus sp., probably Diplocentrus melici.
