Sexing Rhopalurus garridoi:

Sexual dimorphism of the chela is significant from 6.instar at both sexes.



Females: Their chela is able to close fully with no gaps in between the tibia and tarsus

Males: They have a noticeable gap between the tibia and tarsus when the chela is fully closed.



- Sexing is NOT accurate by trying to observe a more bulbous chela which supposingly belongs to an adult male:


- Yes, by comparing a 6.instar pair, a male's chela might be slightly more bulbous than the female but as the female attains 7.instar, the size of the female's chela easily "overwhelm" a males' in terms of a bulbous outlook

Regards,
GS

Good day everyone! Would like to ask your opinion regarding the gender of my garridoi.. i have read the studied the pictures above but i guess the pictures i got are a little shady considering that their pincers are not closed... also took some pectine shots for reference.... thanks a bunch guys...
