hello all, are these pics clear enough to see the "lips"? look like a female to everyone else?

I'm wondering if people are attempting to sex their tarantulas by looking for that white/pale lip at the epigastric furrow, and applying that to tarantulas other than Poecilotheria.
This is a fairly accurate way of sexing Poecilotheria, but IME not in other species.

Are you sure that's a male??? Because I don't see any epiandrous fusillae there and on B.smithi the fusillae stand out bigtime. How did you sex that spider?
