epiandrous fusillae

  1. G. pulchripes sling 2.75in

    G. pulchripes sling 2.75in

    Wondering if anyone can tell me if I’ve got a female or male here if anyone can tell. If the photo quality isn’t high enough, please let me know and I will get a better picture.
  2. B. emilia 2.75in Ventral Sexing (M or F)? [2/2]

    B. emilia 2.75in Ventral Sexing (M or F)? [2/2]

    Added a second photo for clarity. This little one isn't very cooperative so trying to get a good photo can be challenging.
  3. B. emilia 2.75in Ventral Sexing (M or F)? [1/2]

    B. emilia 2.75in Ventral Sexing (M or F)? [1/2]

    Hard to tell with this one, and she's always managed to destroy her molts before I grab them so perhaps someone here can give me some feedback.
  4. Nhandu coloratovillosus #1 - 2.5"

    Nhandu coloratovillosus #1 - 2.5"

    I know that the other one is almost certainly male, but is this one too?
  5. Nhandu coloratovillosus #2 - 2.5"

    Nhandu coloratovillosus #2 - 2.5"

    I know this is almost certainly male, from the developing patch of epiandrous fusillae, but is the other one as well?
  6. Nhandu coloratovillosus #2 - ~1.5"

    Nhandu coloratovillosus #2 - ~1.5"

  7. Nhandu coloratovillosus #1 - ~1.5"

    Nhandu coloratovillosus #1 - ~1.5"

  8. 4" Male Acanthoscurria geniculata [ventral sexing]

    4" Male Acanthoscurria geniculata [ventral sexing]

    There is a conspicuous dark patch of epiandrous fusillae on this molt-confirmed male.
  9. All Brachypelma albopilosum Nicaragua - ~2"

    All Brachypelma albopilosum Nicaragua - ~2"

  10. Nhandu coloratovillosus - ~1.5"

    Nhandu coloratovillosus - ~1.5"

    A big pet peeve of mine is that so few of the photos in this album are ever updated with moult confirmations. It makes trying to compare to other photos almost useless. I really wish people would provide updates.
  11. Brachypelma albopilosum Nicaragua - ~1.5"

    Brachypelma albopilosum Nicaragua - ~1.5"

    I checked the exuvia and I didn't see anything resembling a uterus externus, or spermathecae, so I have already marked this tyke as male. I thought I would try to get a ventral shot to double check and now I am not too sure.
  12. Grammostola pulchra

    Grammostola pulchra

    4"/10cm G. pulchra. Pretty clear with this handsome fella, right?
  13. Brachypelma hamorii

    Brachypelma hamorii

    My 3"/7.6cm B. hamorii. I've never tried sexing by epiandrous fusillae, so figured I'd post for other opinions.
  14. 2" Aphonopelma belindae

    2" Aphonopelma belindae

    It keeps chewing up molts so i guess i'll have to try with ventral sexing. Any opinion if it is a male/female?Feedbacks are much appreciated :)
  15. N. incei 2" DLS (1/2)

    N. incei 2" DLS (1/2)

    I know my picture quality is terrible, but does anyone have any ideas? It's one of two I picked up yesterday
  16. P. sazimai 3 inch

    P. sazimai 3 inch

    I've got two, and originally I was thinking they were both female, but that looks quite a bit like epiandrous fusillae to me. I figured I would get some other opinions. I thought I saw spermathecae in the molt, but it may have just been a tear

    3.5in bought as a "female" Thoughts?
  18. Female C. versicolor

    Female C. versicolor

    Molt confirmed female. She always looked male ventrally until this most recent molt, but it's obvious she's female now that she's reached the 3" mark. So for people with smaller versicolor slings attempting to sex them ventrally, it might be best to wait until around 3" to determine sex
  19. Cyriocosmus giganteus - Approximately 1"

    Cyriocosmus giganteus - Approximately 1"

    I think this might be the only individual in the country. If they are male, they are going to be sorely out of luck.
  20. 1.0 Nhandu chromatus

    1.0 Nhandu chromatus

    This guy has a pretty noticeable "dot", so I thought this might be useful for reference. Roughly 4 inch DLS
