Very bizarre unknown scorpion

Sent to me from Coffs Harbour, Australia. Before anyone suggests Lychas sp., no. It's not.

Really unique shape with a Urodacid style body and tail and Lychas style patterning and legs with the claws being an odd mixture of both genus. Stinger is light orange.
Total length is around 25mm and it rests it's tail above the body, not alongside. It barely glows much under UV compared to Lychas and Urodacus which are very bright
 
Looks like @Dry Desert is a better speller than me, that's the name I tried to text you earlier lol. It's a cracker, never seen one other than in pics, good score mate
 
@Dry Desert Rhino1 discussed this with me just after I uploaded this. It's still interesting though because that genus is mostly restricted to Southern NSW and lower. This must be the absolute maximum their range extends Northward
