Female for sure.

Binky, how can you say male? The pectines are small and the operculum is clearly pointing towards the metasoma and not oval-shaped.

It is point "c"

Genital operculum covers the reproductive organs of the scorpions (genital orifice of females). In the male, the genital operculum is usually partially or completely separate. A pair of genital papillae may protrude from the posterior part of the operculum for males of some species. This is another key sex dimorphism region.
