1.75" Homoeomma chilensis

Guessing male, because that's just my luck this week.
Very hard to see from this picture but chilensis have very pronounced fusillae that’s visible at this size, if you don’t see it than it’s a female
 
Very cool! Whenever I can see the ventral side of the spider, and shine my phone flashlight on it, I don't see a darker patch at the middle, above the "line". So hopefully it's a female! Thank you!
 
Wait, do you mean it's visible in this photo, or it would be visible on the actual tarantula? I'm sorry. Haven't had my ☕ coffee yet.

I don’t see it in this photo but if you shine a light from an angel you should see it...
