I would say female judging by the wide inner space of the pectines.
Is it gravid or just well fed?

Males will have a pectin count of 23-29 while females will have a pectin count of 19-24 so there is an overlap on the pectin count but also anouther good way to tell is to look at how wide the mesasoma if it is thin it is more likely to be a male while if it is wide it is more leading to be a female. this is a photo of the pectin count on a male hope this might help you. I am also leaning towards a female do you have a photo of the scorpion from the top that would help me.
