Striped bark scorpion
Arkansas scorpions are easy to identify because there is only one species, the striped bark scorpion. Adults are about 2½” long, and they have 2 broad, dark longitudinal bands on the dorsal side of the abdomen. The appendages of the post abdomen are uniform yellowish brown, except for the tip of the sting, which is black. This species is the most widespread scorpion.
