Striped Scorpion
   is found in

Centruroides vittatus. Also known as the common bark scorpion. This species coils the tail to one side, rather than holding it upright over the abdomen. Like all of the bark scorpions, the striped scorpion prefers to take shelter off the ground, in rock crevices & under loose bits of tree bark, & doesn't use a burrow. Often seeks shelter in or near buildings & houses. It is probably the most common scorpion species in the U.S.A. Most authorities consider this species to be harmless, but some consider it to be potentially harmful.
