Aphonopelma seemanni

4” A. seemanni. I’m not the best at molts so I’m wondering thoughts. I’m thinking male.
Yeah. Seems to be a male indeed. At 4" i think the spermatheca would show nicely,which i cant spot here.
Yeah that’s what I was thinking. And it molted out black. Not sure if it’s just because it’s freshly molted but I heard males turn darker in this species
 

wait aren’t these two little flaps what I’m looking for?
I believe those are male accessory organs.
Since 4" is already quite a size,i think the spermatheca should be rather obvious. However someone more knowledgeable with the looks of seemanni spermathecae might hopefully prove me wrong

If it was female it would be a big white flap correct?
