Harpactira cafreriana, suspect female

My little DKS surviver - a tough little fighter. In February she was close to death, but she somehow kept feeding and growing and now she's perfectly fine. Her healthy brother already hooked out and went on to breed, so I hope/think she's a she.
Glad she pulled through! Surprised to see webbing- my juvenile is a total pet hole, no surface webbing whatosever.
 
Curious..is this a typical phenotype for this species, or is there a wide variation on brightness etc. It's a gorgeous species. When @KezyGLA posted his, it made me reconsider. If I recall on small side, and quite fast for an OW, yes?

What type of colors did the male have?
 
@viper69 yeah this is typical. But mature males will be extremely metallic orange. Smaller species of Harpactira adult size of 3.5”
 
@KezyGLA No kidding on the males? You have a pic of a male? Yeah, that's right on the smaller side. Much appreciated.
