I'm on my phone so I may be wrong, but I see no flap, just a wrinkle in that area. I'd say male, but perhaps smooth it out more and get a better pic.

yep, wrinkle - not flap.

if you go to the spermathecae sexing portion of the gallery you'll find what a female looks like.

They are visible as slings if you have the proper tools to see it.

If you put just a tiny bit of water on it, the molt will behave better. Of course, plain water beads up and does all sorts of bad things, so put just a smidge of dishsoap in the water. Then spread it out and it should be quite clear. For G pulchripes it's not just a flap, there are two horn looking things. I'm not seeing them here, but they might be hidden by all the wrinkleage.

Look for something like this



Edit: looking closely at the first two I guess I can see one of the 'horns.'

To answer the OP's orignal question:
You can easily see with the naked eye by the time they hit 3". 2" with magnification equipment can give you a definate gender. Prior to 2" you can identify gender with a microscope, but it is not as positive.

Yes.
With a good microscope the uterus externus might be seen witch only females have.

Pics #1 and #2 show a clearly defined spermathecae and uterus externus without any further enhancements required. Some of you better brush up on your sexing skills. Di
