P Metallica
3” P Metallica, I’ve had it for about a month and hasn’t molted with me yet. I’m guessing female but looking for a more educated guess.
I am practicing so please don’t take my guess as correct but that looks very lady part like to me.
 
@Drea Poecilotheria males have a characteristic referred to as the "pokie dot" which females lack. It's usually a small circular patch of light coloured setae around the area of the epigastric furrow. Compare with this photo of my male P. metallica: https://i.imgur.com/z8DRl18.jpg

A caveat being that immediately post-moult this mark can be harder to see, giving hope that you were wrong with previous assessments, only to have that hope slowly fade as the spider becomes vibrant again.
 
I wish my E. Murinus had a dot or something to help me figure that one out.
