P. irminia molt

Yes, you do. Girl parts!!
Holy cow! I’m going to check all my other ts molts now! I’ve been posting on Reddit with the molts upside down (fangs up) and they’ve all said they were males (including this one) !! I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time!

That's funny right there. Those 2 little, reddish-brown horn shaped things are what you're looking for. This species has 2 distinct ones, other species have different shapes and sometimes just one larger "lobe", but they're always on the inside of the molt. 👍
 
yes the 2 things that look like bloody antennas.
Reddit is full of idiots. Try to have less water drops and such so they aren't obscured. One spermatheca is buried under a droplet
And as @NMTs said, these spermatheca are unique to this species, they are all different from Species to species and genus to genus
 
I post pictures to reddit, but I only trust the opinions of a few on there. Most of everyone else just parrots what they've heard before without regard what to the current picture is.
