Hi guys cen you check the gender of my obt? Thanks!
again gender doesn't exist in spiders, recent popularity of the term seem to confuse people
you really want to know the sex of the spider sex = male or female, gender = how do you feel today :troll:

I see... I'm not too familiar with english terms. For a japanese person like me even simple sentence is hard to construct. Even so, I'm scertain I'm not so unclear. Even language enthusiast like you understood what I meant. 😉
 
I'd lean on female,though im not 100% sure. I think i see something that should look like a gonoslit. What is the diagonal legspan on this one?

don't worry even translation software can be misleading these days, i am leaning female too but i don't have much experience sexing african species

The diagonal legspan should be 4" If I could post a clearer photo, I would. But this one does indeed look like a female. Even so, I'm still unsure because of it's smaller frame.


Thanks for the answer!

I see, I'm glad you understand my situation. Most of my english grammar skills are self taught making it very crude. So I apologize for the grammatical errors I made.

Yes I do hope it's female, It does seem to have a gonoslit. But I'm inexperienced on ventral sexing, So I headed here to ask, for more clarity.

Thanks for the honest response!

Yeah,that is a decent size,and by now i think a lot of male characteristics would show - so the chances of this being a male are small. I'd expect to see a spermathecae in the upcoming molt.

For the longest time i was just looking for the gonoslit in ventral sexing when the male characteristics are much clearer in many species. The Title of this Sexing category says it all: "epiandrous fusillae", if it was male i would expect to see them at that size especially on light coloured spiders like yours.

there are a few good souces to learn more about ventral sexing, even a quick google search turns up good examples like this one:


sadly it doesn't include many species but it gets the point across
