Poecilotheria metallica [molt sexing]
This is a molt from a 2.25 dls Poecilotheria metallica #1 from September 8, 2018. Can you determine its sex yet??
Poecilotheria are the most difficult spiders to molt sex, since the males have prominent accessory organs that are easily mistaken for spermathecae. Sexing this is just guesswork.

They are much easier to sex ventrally. If you get a good ventral pic sexing should be easy - and reliable.
 
Beautiful photograph. Am I the only one who thinks this looks like a winter scene of catkins in the snow?
