Can you sex P.Metallica dorsally, simply by the patterns or colors? How accurate is this?

I think I read it somewhere in the internet, but just wanted to be sure or to get some inputs from some of the experts here.

I think if you were you would have to have 2 pms and one be a male and one a female to do that I know with true spiders the females tend to be brighter in color than its counter part.

After a certain size, females' dorsal stripes begin to fade.. That's about all you can do I guess..

I noticed on a lot of p.met mating vids on YouTube that the males had a faded look on the abdomen compared to the females. I really hope I'm wrong.

I buy 10 a year as slings and grow them on, never ever have I been right when sexing that way, they always prove me wrong. I'd say no
