These small scorpions are found in gibber plains in the Stony Desert region, SA. Gibber consists of fine-grained, loose red dirt with a lot of flat, desert-varnished rocks and little to no changes in elevation or vegetation. This desolate habitat contains many of Australia’s coolest-coloured invertebrates. Purple centipedes, bright orange scorpions and zebra-striped cockroaches are just a few examples.

This species reaches 40mm in length and has a relatively timid temperament although they can be fast. We recommend a sealed container with very slightly moist red desert sand. a bark hide and some sphagnum moss for foraging will be appreciated by the scorpions too.
