I'm not convinced by those photos.

I think we need better ventral photos and a dorsal shot. How big is the specimen?

I'm not sure, I put magnifying glass on it and I swear I see a flap with 2 things sticking out of it.

Well in that case I agree with Jason. Can you get a better ventral shot?

Ventrally looks female to me.

Also, what Jason said.

It looks a bit female, that's why I was wondering how big it was, and what it looked like dorsally. From one of the pictures above, I think I can guesstimate that the T is in the 4-5" range, by that size you should be able to distinguish them dorsally pretty easily.

2.5 to 3" tops.

I thought dorsal sexing was based on the abdomen, not carapace? :?

That's my understanding as well. I would say male based on the dorsal picture, but I haven't gotten a clear answer as to when that lightens up on a female.
