      I think it may be female. @cold blood would know better though.

      Hard to say....in person it would be easy.

      Shine a light at different angles....usually back to front is best....males show a distinct dot above the furrow under the right lighting angle

      thanks y’all. wish the pic was better + i’ve been trying to check for the dot, but the spider emerges like once a month and bolts underground every time a flashlight is involved (photophobia levels: maximum) - the dot should become more visible as it reaches 4” so i may just have to wait until then

      update: looks like it had molt complications and died in the last 24 hours. it tried to molt vertically, same position as the pic. very light misting before molt and tried giving water after i noticed, but it's been half-molted for a couple days now; no movement, death curl

      OH NO! I'm so sorry! That really is a stab of bad luck. I'm sorry for your loss :(.
