The most effective way is to count the teeth on their pectines. I just get them into a clear container and take a pic of their undersides. Then you can blow it up on your computer and count the number of teeth on them. Each species has a count on how many teeth a male/female has. You will have to look up your particular species. In fact both the species that you mention also have obvious diff between adult males and females (ex-flat rock males are really elongated in comparison to females). Good luck! Hope it helps!!
