Just wondering if you can ventrally sex trapdoor spiders. I had mine out and the epigastric furrow looks almost like a T's except it is hairless. Would this be a possible way to sex immature trapdoor spiders?

well, a good first step would be to have everyone with traps (Bothriocyrtum californicum in "our" case here) take ventral shots

Yeah, this is a great idea!

I wonder about Liphistius as well?

Cool! I have four malayanus. They are fascinating spiders!
