LP Spermathecae sexing
My Lasiodora Parahybana molted and im unsure if it is a male or female. My pincers for sure get stuck on something but im unsure if it is "enough" of a flap there.
Confirmed egg yolk.

In all honesty, though, I'm inclined to think female, but the visual isn't clear enough for me.
 
I could be blind, but I'd put money on male. Females of this species have a very distinctive 'alien antenna' style of spermatheca. Here is an adult one for comparison (middle left picture, as labeled). At the size of your spider, it should be fairly obvious.
