P. Formosa: Male or Female?

This is my 2.5 inch Poecilotheria Formosa. Can anyone tell me if this is a male or a female? Thanks

      Looks female to me based on the prominent white "slit." Best wait for a molt to confirm though.

      @Misty Day yeah, i keep trying on sexing with the molts but they alway end up tearing or being messed up even if the molt is still fresh

      I am basing my answer off of the dark spot above the gonoslit at the fussilae.

      It is quite visible and is quite an accurate indicator of sex (when talking Poeci).

      However, as Misty said, moult is most accurate

      That's about as male as it gets - @Misty Day there's no way this is a female. Males have a gonoslit, too, but females don't have epiandrous fusillae and they are quite visible here.

      I do, however, admit that a gonoslit as visible as here is rare in a male.
    There are no comments to display.
