L. Parahybana
Recently molted, thought I'd put it up on here to see if anyone can sex it.
Thanks in advance.
I'm going to say Male because of the dark colored circle near where the abdomen meets the carapace. This is almost certainly a male. As far as ventral sexing goes, this looks to be a textbook male. As with all ventral sexing though, it's never 100% certain. Sexing the molt is the better option if possible.

I would like to get a hold of a molt from it that hasn't been completely destroyed lol. I have it but it is in pieces, and I couldn't get to it before it dried out as it molted inside of its burrow. So by the time I found out it was too late :(
I have another picture here, but from what you said about the dark circle... it only looks to be a male even more... which is sad as I already have a MM L. Parahybana, and this is my 1st T so wanted it to be female.View media item 59333
Thank you for the help.
 
I would say male. Seems obvious to me due to that dark shaded area between the top booklungs
