another vent for you...
@Casey K. @AZTom @Jess S @ilovebrachys @T-Baby @Arachnoclown as I know you like them so much...ha ha
I'm going with male with this one @Phil but pic is not the clearest lol :)
originally purchased as a female but I don't know if you remember or not, this is actually the one that arrived in a horrible state....


The fact it is still alive is a bonus!

Yes I remember when you got this T... Terrible state it was in and glad to hear its alive and thriving :) I hope my intial guess is wrong as would be great if proved to be female
 
I'm going with female. I see a crescent moon shape on the furrow....it also resembles a mustache. Look at the book long spacing, as well. :)

So it's the crescent moon in the middle of the furrow? In that case my pulchripes is probably female! :)

Yes it's a shape that implies female. Males usually have a smaller patch of triangular, square or circular hair, which is much shorter and less uniform and if it's a great photo, sometimes you can make out small rows of e fusillae too.

My pic wasn't the greatest but I do see what appears to be a little gap in the middle IRL

My only confirmed tarantula is my male Brachypelma baumgarteni but you can't really see anything but booklungs due to everything being jet black lol:)

If you can get a better pic, reupload.
I quite enjoy 'ventral guessing' as @plessey calls it :) he certainly has a point, as only a moult can be 109%, but I still like ventral. If I get them wrong, that's a great opportunity for me to learn a bit more and refine my methods, which is why I prefer it when people update these threads when they get moult confirmation. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of opinions and anyone using these threads to learn vent sexing can be lead astray. Say if for instance everyone said female but the t turned out to be male without the thread being updated.
