I can't identify the uterus externus but i definitely see two objects. Are they spermathecae or accessory organs?
@boina If i could trouble you to answer one other question for me, please. The organs are attached only at the base and i can flip them back and forth with a small object. i know this s typical of spermathecae. is it normal for male accessory organs as well or is it exclusive to spermathecae? Thanks. :)
 
Sorry for the late reply but for some reason I didn't get the alert for this... I think this looks female. The nubs seem too big for accessory organs and I think I see the bursa copulatrix.
 
@boina

No need for apologies. You have no obligation to help me so i consider all the help to be pure kindness and generosity. no time frame required (besides it hasn't even been 24 hours so that's still excellent service IMO ;) ).


Thank you!!!!! :)
