Lasiodora Parahybana
The leg span is approx 6-7 inches. I bought as a juvenile a few years ago and I am hoping it's female so I just wanted to see if anyone can tell the sex from this photo if possible. Thanks!
@Conor121 Well my friend, you'll be happy to know that this specimen shows all of the characteristics of a female!
Quite a bit of distance between the first pair of book lungs and a clear shot of her epigastric furrow.
I don't see any epiandrous fusillae, and the curvature of the furrow along the book lungs would lead me to suggest it is in fact a female.
Congratulations!

For comparison, here is a ventrally sexed male to see the difference:
