I've got to grips with most of the New Worlders, but as I don't get the chance to see any definitely sexed adult T's I'm always guessing and uncertain of my diagnoses.

This is a 5" Haplopelma sp. "longipedum"

Now my initial thought would be female - dark area which is slightly raised just above the epigiastric furrow, denoting spermathecae?
Am I on the right track?

The only way I'm going to get any good at this is by studying as many "definite" males and females as I can....

Not bad for £20 (about $30 I think)

She's a little sulky - never seen a T hold threat posture for over an hour before.....
