I know they are sexually dimorphic and after her last molt, she looks very much like a boy from pictures. I can't be certain though because it's the only one I've ever had, so I have no first hand reference. What do you think?

It is a male. If you want to pair him up when he is mature, I have two females waiting!

OP - confirm it with a picture of the palps, please.

If it is an MM there will be hooks, but very small and not as pronounced if I remember correctly.

Sorry Joe...since I took this picture he's been huddled up in his little retreat. I'd harass him, but I hate doing that unless it's an absolute necessity. If he comes out in the next few day's I'll try to get a close up for you though.

no need to see palps to confirm, it is a Mature male
Psalmopoeus irminia males are sexually dimorphic on their ultimate molt
