D. pentaloris
Molt is 2.5” DLS

I see two spermathicae like shapes but they seem Much too small for the size of the specimen. They don’t have the typical been shape that i am familiar with for male accessory organs, but i am thinking perhaps thats what they are. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I see what you're talking about. I'm not entirely familiar with this species since I don't keep it myself, so I could be wrong, but considering that D. pentaloris is a smaller species, I'd expect for spermathecae to be more developed and and more inclined to believe those are male accessory organs than spermathecae. Maybe try letting it dry out a little and look again, as uterus externus would be easier to see then.
