Well my male from mouth to end of mesasoma is about 9cm and my female is about the same.

I'd assume they are mature but I was just wondering if there was a way to tell if they were mature. scratch

If the male has the long metasoma, my guess is he's mature.

If the female is roughly the same size as a mature male, my guess is she's mature.

I'd show my own photos for examples, but my server is currently out of commission.

Sorry I made a mistake before. My male is huge and yes has very elongated tail - will post pics eventually.

My female looks at least one instar smaller possibly two.

I put them in a tank together hoping they would mate, but they seemed disinterested in each other. Whether this was a result of them being recently disturbed by being moved or the female being immature I don't know.

Correct me if im wrong but sexual dimorphism (The elongated tail in ur case) only occur when it is matured
So when u see urs with elongated tail = its matured Smile

But how can I find out whether my female is mature or not?

It has a smaller mesasoma and a short metasoma but the chela are very similar in size. scratch

I had an adult female whose entire body was the same size as my mature male (minus the metasoma).
