Hehehe

I'll post back some pictures when the one on picture 2 has eaten. It is freshly moulted so might give a wrong image..

Can you even dorsally sex this species? The only ones I'm aware of where you can do that are where there's a sexual dimorphism (such as P. irminia), or when you have a very leggy adult male.

Yes you can though it does not give 100% certainty. It is however on some individuals that clear that mistakes cannot be made.
Female= high contrast on abdominal drawing, thorax
Male= duller abdomen and thorax

As they are juvies, you cannot tell by the size of their legs yet.
