Vaejovis tenuipalpus Sissom et al, 2012
Above is a photo of a new species of Vaejovis from northern Arizona. This Arizona Scorpion photo was taken on Getz Peak, Hualapai Mountains, Arizona in August of 2009. Vaejovis tenuipalpus is related to Vaejovis deboerae, Vaejovis crumpi, and other members of the vorhiesi group, but is a distinct species. I am very fortunate to have pics of rare scorpions like this one.
