The latin name for the short spined sea scorpion is Myxocephalus Scorpius, and contrary to popular folklore they don't sting or jab you with their spines. My one claim to fame was that more years ago than I care to remember I held the British Record for the species at 1 pound 15 ounces 9 drams. Caught on a 5/0 hook and a big bunch of ragworm while cod fishing on Peterhead North Breakwater. They fight like a Tesco carrier bag part full of water.
