What do you think after molting? Still look like a lady?

@NMTs You seem like you are extremely knowledgeable on these. You looked at it before it molted and said it looked female, does it look more female after molting? It was a few months ago.
(I apologize if pinging you is not appropriate)

No worries, I don't mind. Honestly, I think it looks more like a male now.

By the time they hit 3" DLS or so, females will have : A) a very obviously bulging "lip" on the epigastric furrow; B) a line of white setae above the "lip"; or C) some combination of both. See these examples:




The little white "mustache" yours had prior to molting has disappeared, and it seems like there's a darker, denser patch of setae forming over that top lip - which would be epiandrous fusillae, male parts. The only way to be 100% sure is to look at the molt, though!
