Eupalaestrus campestratus

I tried adding this to my original post, but it wouldn’t accept my media link. I used a macro app, but I’m sure it won’t be any easier to determine gender. They are a 2” DLS post molt. I appreciate everyone’s time and won’t post photos again until they are a decent size.
Better pic for sure, but still a bit too small. I think I see what may be the beginnings of spermathecae (female reproductive organs) when I zoom in as far as my phone will allow, but it's not clear enough to be sure. If that's what they are, though, they should become more and more evident each time it molts. At that small size, you should have another exuvia to examine within 60 days or so, so let's check again then!

Thank you so much, I do appreciate it. Their first molt with me was July 1st and this one was September 19th, so I will be on the lookout for another in a couple of months. Male or female doesn’t really matter to me, but I’m almost 46 and might need to add a long lived female to my Will. ;)
