Scorpions in Cuba

Can anybody help me identify these 2 scorpions I found in Cuba last week please? Or maybe point me towards a website that may help. Thanks

With many things, you can just try a simple Google search e.g 'Scorpion, Cuba' and it's surprising how successful that can be.

Funnily enough, I've just purchased the 'Scorpions of the World' book from the sale that has been posted here recently.
