I have a bad camera so if i take a picture from the front the flash takes over. I've been thinking its a girl just need a second opinion.

I can't see the pic from work, but if your flash is washing everything out. try a piece of paper in front of the flash. I have to do that on many pics I take.

The epiandrous fusillae from that bad angle looks like a girl to me.. Suppose a better picture would be better though :)

I say female as well, at least from the picture/angle, it looks like my female B. smithi.

If it's a female, then there are no epiandrous fusillae, only males have those.

Does look female but if you can get a shot from a more head-on perspective, it'd be easier to tell

Two pictures that might help... Sorry there still both pretty bad..



Sorry there still not completely face on, the 'paper in front of flash' trick wasn't working too well.
I definitely know now that i will never get a job in photography hahah...
