Caribena versicolor [ventral sexing]
Looks female to me, but I'm not great with ventral sexing avics.

At this size, the spermathecae in the molt are very obvious.
 
At five inches there is an almost 100% certainty that they are female. Males mature at less than five inches. My mature female is only about 4.5" and my mature male is smaller.
