Barely over 2" molt. I think female but want to make sure i'm not seeing accessory organs. Usually i don't care but i'm selling this one and don't want to mislabel.

      This species doesn't have obvious accessory organs, not all of them do. Accessory organs have a very distinct look to them - two dark, round objects, spaced far apart, with nothing joining them together resembling a 'flap'.
      This looks female to me.

      @VanessaS Thank you

      i'm still working on my mental database for charateristics of different species and different sizes. I know some have accessories that are obvious and some don't just wasn't sure if these do, and couldn't definitively identify the uterus externus 'flap' on this one so i was worried. LOL.

      @Theneil I'm still learning too. There are so many types, and shapes, of spermathecae and in many cases the uterus externus is not very obvious. One genus like that is Thrixopelma - the female and male organs look very similar. In the case of Brachypelma, the uterus externus is fairly obvious, which makes the male organs look distinctly different.
      The spermathecae image database here is one of the best resources. I only wish more people would specify size on their images, because that makes a huge difference in what you're looking for. If your tarantula is only 2", looking at an example of a 6" female is not that helpful.
