Hi everyone,

my P.Formosa just finished molting, and I removed the old skin to try sexing it. I believe it to be a female, but a little help would be appreciated.

Yup. That little leaflike extension in the middle of the epigastric furrow is a 100% marker. Males would have nothing, a slight wrinkle at most.
