about euscorpius sp.


Recommended Posts

Welcome Florin!

 

I like very much Euscorpius, but I can say something sure only for E. italicus and E. alpha of northern Italy, I don't know directly very well the specific habitats of the other species (but I'm studyng for this!).

Anyhow, I think, in general, for my experience, that Euscorpius is a very opportunistic genus, that doesn't prefer really any particoular habitat...

 

These are only my observations, not strictly laws:

E. Italicus seems to be very common in (or better, out) old farmsted, houses, castles, both in town and country, where there are old and cracked walls, or stone-walls.

 

I've found E. alpha only on mountains, surely in the old walls, but it seems (relatively) rare in houses. They are common also under scuttered stones in more or less wooded zones.

Thank you Matteo,

 

I hope that in the near future, I can provide to you and your association, more information and some pictures about my "common" Euscorpius(in Romania) - E. carpathicus.

 

I already know a little about E. carpathicus habitat: in my region (Buzau county) it is very rare and and preferes some domestic (if I can say so) habitats-the correct word for it is "domicol"(in romanian), which means that it lives nearby humans and their houses, [especially in winter seeking for warmth].

 

 

 

Salutari tuturor! (Salutti a tutti!)

 

 

 

Ciao!

The scientific word for the animals that live near human is sinantropic

 

Also here, in Italy, Euscorpius is common in or near houses, but this habitat doesn't seem especially preferred for the temperature, but much more for the tipe of hiding places that the domestic habitat can offer. In fact I often find many scorpions around houses, and the people that live for years in these houses say to me that they didn't ever seen scorpions before!

 

I think that the more sinantropic behaviour of romanian specimens may be related with colder climate.
