Sexing Rhopalurus junceus:

Comparison between an adult pair:
#1


Males: Apart from the slimmer body mass as compared to females, they have a noticeable "tooth" on the moveable finger (tarsus) with the fixed finger (tibia) slightly curved; resulting in a gap between the tibia and tarsus when the chela is fully closed.

Females: They have bulkier body mass and their chela is able to close fully in a relax position. The convex and concaves matches.


Significant sexual dimorphism of the chela begins at 6.instar:
#2


#3


#4


I'll keep this post updated on future relevant findings.

Cheers,
GS
