Phrynus longipes

Juvenile female -- (orange morph variant)
@aphono Thank you! To your question, I bought it from Martin (TCanada) presexed -- he explained that sexing Phrynus sp. was fairly easy, I'll have to follow up with him on how he did it.
 
@Flexzone Thanks for the response! Would love to know what he says- PM me if it might be easier. I got 5 P. whitei and noticed it kind of seemed two had a similar external genital operculum shape versus three others with a different shape. Wondering if that's what he checks out or something entirely else.
 
wow, what amazing colours. I never knew these whip scorpions came in such vibrant colours. Do the females have shorter pedipalps than the males? Is this how they are sexed? (I know next to nothing of these critters)
 
@Dr SkyTower With this sp. palp size is homogeneous, and I believe that goes for the entire genus Phrynus sp, aswell... There's a thread showing that sexe can be determined via the genital plate config on their underside.
