1.5" G pulchra (probably Quirogai) [1/3]

Conflicted on this. Looks like spermatheca lobes connected but maybe male accessory organs. 1.5 inches. Not as obvious as other species I keep.
Male. That is not spermathecae and females have a very prominent uterus externus. Also, that big, dark, oval thing that you're pointing at is the gonopore.
 
I am actually leaning toward female now. The gonopore looks like a uterus externus to me. Male accessory organs are usually wider at the top than bottom. These are clearly wider at the bottom. I could be wrong and I appreciate your input
 
Uh I can't make up my mind @VanessaS. You probably right. I'll trust your experience with this one and go with male. I feel like the spermatheca would be longer for this one.
 
I could be wrong too, it's a very small individual. Keep checking, things will become far more obvious around the 3" mark if they're female. That is also about the same size that a male will have obvious epiandrous fusillae.
