also, one thing to point out is that with most pokies (any of the ones i have/sexed) there isnt really a dark patch we are looking for as more of a bald spot right at the base of the mound. take for instance, my male poecilotheria of similar size.I think it looks female to me. The only thing that is a little bit confusing is the dark patch above the furrow. The patch is not in the right spot for epiandreous fusillae though. I am no expert on pokies though...... in my opinion one of the hardest arboreals to sex.
