Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens / GBB - 1.5 inch

99% sure male, just because i've never had experience with sexing a GBB in person. Confirm please!
@NMTs What do you think of this one?
I think it's too small to call confidently one way or the other. Those could be the start of spermathecae, or they could be male accessory organs - if a patch of epiandrous fusillae or the beginnings of a flap were present, that would swing it one way or the other, but neither of those have developed yet so who knows.

If I had to say, though, I would go with male. The spermathecae on my female at that size were shaped more like an "M" than "O_O" like these are.
