Poecilotheria ornata male or female

1.5 inches dls. Not sure if it is still too small to sex, any help would be great. Thank you.
They're sexually dimorphic at 3'' which males and females look distinctively different at 3'' inches. The picture also appears to be a freshly molted tarantula? If so, then the picture is not really helpful as freshly molted males will not have their epiandrous fusillae visible since they are freshly molted.

Yes it is freshly molted. I will check the dorsal pattern once it reaches 3 inches. Thank you for your help.
