Well let me know when you have a male with a white band that thick and bright, and yellow and white so bright on the legs. Cause I want him if you have one. All my males even before maturing are a drab color all over. Even the strip is thinner and weaker in color. Ahh well guess we shale wait for a molt.Some pics make me think female others make me think male.. I'd say wait for a molt.
I'm not sure if they have hooks, but I'm pretty sure the pedipalps differ on mature males. Hmmm....If I'm not mistaken, the bulbous appearance of the palps is caused by the male making a sperm web and transferring the sperm to the palps. Right? If so, it should be at least a few more weeks for him to start making the web. And I'm also not sure about this either, but do pokies have hooks?
Hopefully the molt isn't in too bad of shape for it to be sexed.
Ahh ok, thank you for the correction. :worship:Pokies don't develop tarsal spurs, I don't think. But a MM will have the "bulbs" as soon as he molts. Or really, before he molts, just underneath the exuvium, if you want to get technical. Anyway, emboli don't swell noticeably to the eye when "charged".
Cool, thanks for the input Rain Flower!Looks like a lady to me.
Edite: Had to add picture for comparison. Granted, my regalis is not as large as yours, you can still see the differences.
My regalis is 100% maaale, you can see the differences in the coloring and the stripe on the abdomen like Ryan mentioned before.
