      I think I can JUST see the outline of their rabbit-ear shaped spermathecae, but they're very lightly coloured and I can't make it out for certain. It doesn't help that the image is blurry, either.

      Try backlighting it - that's what I did. Backlighting it shows the spermathecae very clearly. I could see the spermathecae in my female and she is the same size.

      @VanessaS I prefer this method when I sex any small T. It's hard to see on smaller specimens when the spermathecae aren't sclerotized and are pretty much transparent. Also helps to check again after the molt dries.

      @Arachnophoric Yes, and it also helps for those species who have a very prominent uterus externus that otherwise blocks the transparent spermathecae.

      Got a couple more images, not sure if it helps. Was unable to back light this time around. Will try next time. Thank you!
