" Male Tanzanian Giant Tailless Whipscorpions have longer, spikier pedipalps. Females get a bit larger and their pedipalps are smaller, stockier, and are often held tightly against the body".

"I also believe it is a male because its pedipalps (front spiny arms) are very long to where the "elbows" extend past the length of the first segment of the walking legs on each side".

That's all I could find. Hope it helps!

The male's pedipalps (arms) are ridiculously long compared to the female's. You'll know if you have a pair.
