I am the type to document everything and now that I have a Monocentropus balfouri I am doing the same for this species. In my search for the spermathecae image, I could not find pictures of what it would look like.
So This is my first look under a microscope. Looks like boxing gloves. I wanted to share. If there are other pics around please post.
Enjoy.

Either of you have decent ventral shots to go with those? Would be nice to see some from a confirmed T...

No, sorry. These guys are as close to a pet hole as you can get. It is pretty hard to get a ventral shot.
I will try to get one.

Sorry for hijacking the thread but this is kind of exciting...

Today my "probable" male molted and I think I saw these with naked eye. I hope it is not wishful thinking but this is a small spider and they were very tiny. But definitely sitting on a darker area and definitely 2. I need a dissecting microscope for sure.

Here is how it looked ventrally before molting:



Any idea?
