On August 2nd, biologist George Mitchell took Sealy to a short grass prairie area “ in the middle of nowhere. ” In addition to the scorpions they had hoped to observe, the pair found this specimen which was collected and preserved. Sealy added the specimen to the Stewart-Hay collection when he started his faculty position here at the University of Manitoba.
