I've been told it's a female silenus, and also that shes pregnant.
I know you can tell by the 'feathers' on the pectines and I've tried to compare to pics online, but I'm getting more confused the more I look!
Also the pictures I see of pregnant scorpion look way fatter.
Can anyone please confirm species, sex and likelihood of little scorplings on the way?

I'm gonna say that's definitely a female. I wish I could be of more help, but I only know the ones I own.
Thank you. I thought the feathers were short & therefore female, but the more I looked they didn't look as short as other females pics.

Np, I'm not an expert so I can't be 100% sure, I only breed my Tityus stigmurus so it's the only one I am 100% positive is a female in my collection, but there easy to sex cause they are all female lol.
