Psalmopoeus ecclesiasticus [molt sexing]
Psalmopoeus ecclesiasticus female? @Ungoliant I believe I see what would verify that it's a female, but I'm new to this sexing bit. All help appreciated

I see spermathecae, so I'm going with female.
 
@VanessaS thanks for the tip on tagging. Thanks so much for confirming spermathecae. This is my first time actually spotting what I'm looking for, so it's exciting for me. I wouldn't have spotted if not for @Ungoliant. I needed light from underneath to spot it myself. :)
 
@s0n1cs3v3n Backlighting makes the world of difference. Especially in species who have large uterus externus that block the spermathecae. Young female spermathecae are very transparent, and difficult to see, and a large uterus externus can block them completely.
