In the scrubland, at 16 km in the south of L'Hospitalet
de l'Infant, on the road N340.
found : Buthus occitanus
of scrubland betweens the fields of olive-trees. Many
bushes and a sun very present make that this place
is rather rather arid the summer, however, the presence
of hills to a few hundred meters makes that the streaming
of rainwater comes on this scrubland and allows a relative
moisture of the ground (see the first photograph).
It is not necessary to move away very far from the
way to find the first specimens. Presence of much of
insects (grasshoppers, locusts, phasmids ...) but
also of predatory potentials (scolopendras, praying
mantis, geckos...). The scorpions are found under stones
of average to gross size (blue arrows).
