This is Murphy. He/she molted two weeks ago. I would LOVE it if I could get some help with sexing him/her.

I'm reading and trying to learn but am not good at what to look at.
It looks to me like Murphy is a male. I'm looking at that dark patch between the front booklungs.

This is an extremely iffy way of sexing a spider, however. You'd be much better off looking at a molt.
 
Thank you! I did post his molt earlier (in my media). The molt was torn though when he molted.

If you are feeling generous check out that pic in my media. I think you are correct.
 
Nope. I'm afraid I can't offer an opinion on that molt. Between Murphy tearing it up and my piss poor phone screen, I couldn't hope to guess.
