    I have 2 S calceatum and one is around 4" ls the other one is 3. I notice that ine has orange color tines and the ither ithe is almost completely gray. Could the gray one be the male?

    Sorry for not having better pics but I wouldnt disturb them for these.. :)

    I am not asking to sex them, just curious if there's a documented color difference based on sex

    I don't know about colorforms or differences, but I know there is a subspecies with a completely black underside called S. c. calceatum

    Really can’t identify specifics by those pictures. However, there are S. calceatum specimens that are grey.

    maybe... they both were sold as S calceatum though... ill try to get a ventral photo to see if it matches H mac

    I'd be very interested to see the differences here in clearer pictures if they are both in fact S. calceatum! Could length of time since their last molt also be a factor?

    this is the grayish one, a week after molt... But ventral side is black so ni h mac... I guess thes is just gray
