Are you sure? I do not see any arch....

Are you sure? I do not see any arch....

Well What i mean, is that the hairs kind of curl in that form but there is no difference in coloration behind it... I am just looking for reassurance, thanks for your input!

I had the same problem and sometimes it's very hard to tell with certain species. Here are pictures of a female and male(in that order) to compare to. I can see an arch in all your photos so I'd say with good confidence they are male, females have absolutely no fusillae in the Epig furrow area.

The 3rd one was kinda hard to tell, but in the end if you look closer they all look male.
