The so called "Deathstalker" scorpion, scientific name Leiurus quinquestriatus doesn't occur naturally in Mexico. You might have been stung by a Centruroides species, though, with are also members of the Buthidae family. Mexico has several Centruroides species that are considered medical significant.
