The general concensus is that if it lays eggs, it's female.

There's one or two species where body width / leg length comparisons can point you in the right direction (I think S. polymorpha is one), but I don't think that your species fall under that category.

Good luck with your pedes, though!

Edit: This thread belongs in the "Myriapods" forum. Can any of the mods please relocate it?
