Dolichothele diamantinensis

I’m thinking female but I had a lot of trouble getting this molt open
I am not seeing the needed section to make any judgement. You need to moisten that opithsoma and open it up

I posted a better picture in the next slide over but I'll try to get the opisthoma open later. This molt was fresh but tearing really easily. Thanks for taking a look
 
typically the epigastric furrow (where the spermatheca would be) is between the 2 lower book lungs. Is that part of one in the photo?

Those are the top two booklungs in the pic. Is that location specific to this genus/species? Usually from what I’ve seen the spermatheca is between or centered just below the top 2 booklungs
