I know it's always best to wait for a molt, but it seems like I've been waiting forever and someone wants to know what it is... I thought female, but... Heck, this is a pain.

Any guesses?

i think i can see spermatheca.
Spermathecae are on the inside, so I don't think so!
The pictures are close enough, but I can't see enough detail (on my phone, at least) to see I there are epiandrous fusillae or not. I'll check again when I get home.

Nice gloves! :)

EDIT:

Home now, looks a lot more detailed than on my phone. I'd guess female.

I think the photos are too *dark* to see anything. If you have any kind of photo editing software, I would try to enhance the contrast, lighten the photo.

I saved the last one, ran it through my software, and looked in the correct area.

I see a slight smile... top ) bottom, for what it is worth.
