3-3.5" M. balfouri?
I know the picture sucks but does anyone have an educated guess on whether or not this one is Male or Female? It is currently between 3-3.5"
Take this with a grain of salt but it looks like he's got epiandrous fusillae on his crescent patch. I'm leaning towards male, but I don't keep this species so I'm not 100% positive.
 
A regular picture of the T. is good enough for a guess instead of ventral sexing if it's 3''-3.5''. At that size it's most likely either mature or pen-ultimate if it is a male since most males mature at 3.5''-3.75'' if male. A regular dorsal picture can easily tell if it's male or female at this point in size, so a picture of the dorsal with it's legs and carapace would likely help.

But taking a look at the ventral I would say female.
 
@RobertJ1 There is your second opinion. He's a much more experienced keeper than I so, I would trust his observations more than mine.
