Kinda looks like a Tityus obscurus or possibly T.metuendus, but Ive only had a couple Tityus. I've unfortunately not had either of them in my collection yet. So just going off pics I've seen of both species. Definitely not T.asthenes though

Here is a checklist of scorpions in Bahia: http://www.checklist.org.br/getpdf?SL021-09

No record of T. obscurus or T. metuendus. Very probable that it is in fact T. brazilae but Tityus is a huge genus with many, many species that are closely related. There are also many more that have not been described yet.
