B. emilia 2.75in Ventral Sexing (M or F)? [2/2]

Added a second photo for clarity. This little one isn't very cooperative so trying to get a good photo can be challenging.
It's been a while since you've been around, glad to see your back. This species is quite difficult to ventral sex because males and females have very spaced out book lungs. But your's looking female to me, but future molts would help to be sure.
 
I also think that it looks female, especially in the second photo.The epigastric furrow looks "lippy", so I'm definitely leaning towards female.
 
@Liquifin I will be sure to try and harvest the molt w/o her destroying it this time to confirm.

Female was my suspicion as well, just because of the lippy furrow as @spideyspinneret78 pointed out.

At this size, the molt should be sexable with the naked eye correct?
 
Yes technically. But it would probably help a lot if you used a magnifying glass, or even better a dissecting scope if you have one available.
