Mike,

Yeah, Carl's the scorpion fluorescence guy. Another interesting paper by him is:

2008. A comparison of fluorescence in two sympatric scorpion species. Journal of photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology 91:132–136.

In this paper, fluorescence in Paruroctonus shulovi (I suspect this species is really P. becki) and Vaejovis confusus is compared and a statistically significant difference between species was discovered. Definitely an interesting read.

Cheers,
Luc
