It looks to be a male. I agree that I have seen longer metasomas but it may just be the individual or it might not be mature yet.

First of all, what a beautiful scorpion!
I think it's definitely male, the metasoma (tail) has larger segments very slender and long and I believe it's not fully grown yet?
See the difference with my female here:

i'm going for male too.. the pedipalps is too elongated for a female that has oval-ish/semi-rounded looking pedipalp. the metasoma of yours have longer segments too suggesting a male

A good rule of thumb for the Hadogenes, if its full grown and the metasoma is longer then the body, male.. shorter female..
