Arizona bark scorpion

The Arizona bark scorpion is a small light brown scorpion common to the Sonoran Desert in southwest United States and northwestern Mexico. An adult male can reach 8 cm in length, while a female is slightly smaller, with a maximum length of 7 cm.

Centruroides exilicauda

Centruroides exilicauda, the Baja California bark scorpion, is a species of bark scorpion found in Baja California. It is closely related to the Arizona bark scorpion, but is not considered dangerous. Previously only distinguished by geographic range, the two variants were classified in 1980 as the same species. Subsequently, differences in venom toxicity were recorded, and in 2004, DNA analysis showed them to be separate species.

It inhabits marine and brackish waters in Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Ecuador, El Salvador, Colombia, Peru, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Panama. It dwells at a depth range of 10 to 30 m. It reaches a maximum total length of 70.6 cm, more commonly reaching a TL of 30 cm. Chili sea catfish feeds on fish scales.

Lamacha bilineolata

                                               

Nymphon brevirostre

Nymphon brevirostre is a species of sea spider first described by George Hodge in 1863. The species highly resembles other members of the genus Nymphon, and species identification from morphological traits alone is therefore a complex task.

                                               

Nymphon gracile

Nymphon gracile is a species of sea spider first described by William Elford Leach in 1863. The species highly resembles other members of the genus Nymphon, and species identification from morphological traits alone is therefore a complex task.

                                               

Red sea urchin
