P. metallica, 2 "
Another darling I was lucky to bring home yesterday. Sexing w/o molt totally seems easy, from reading what to look for, but I look for what I know should be there (or not) and then get confused. Help lol?
I am not great at this but it looks female to me. Shine a flashlight at a steep angle (cant remember if its butt to head or head to butt so try both) and if you see a small dot light up above the epigastric furrow, then it is male.
 
@Theneil I tried it and I don't see a dot. I uploaded the P. vittata, who has a very visble dot and someone just agreed it's probably Male. At least I know what to look for now!!

Ohh it was you there too :) like my sig says, little slow at first. Very cool!

Thanks :)
