Well, the chela are certainly different sizes. But i don't know which one is the male and which is the female.
I would guess male on top female on bottom, but wait for someone else to confirm before you take my unsure word on it. Smile

The pectines are certainly smaller on the top one, so maybe the top one is male? scratch

I think you got that one backwards -- usually smaller pectines = female.

I think I'm going to agree with antmac here. Smaller pectines aside, the noticeable gap between the pectine teeth leads me to believe that the top one is a female (the wide gap in some species is analogous to female humans having wider hips - makes parturition a tad easier).
