2" Female Phormictopus sp. "south Hispaniola" [molt sexing] [2/2]
I see what looks like a nascent spermatheca on the right and a translucent flap. Thoughts?
@ShyDragoness This photo was taken after I'd let the molt dry on the paper towel for 45 minutes. Picture #1 (linked above) might actually show these features better.
