    @KezyGLA @sdsnybny What do you think? It keeps ripping up its molts. I'm leaning male but Im not very good at ventral sexing.

    Not familiar with the sp but I would guess male. Lung spacing, rangy legs and what looks like the dark begining of an epiandral arch? But we all know what thats worth.

    I've had two A.seemanni in premolt for like 2 months now. Waiting patiently to sex them. As for yours... No idea ;) It's gorgeous though!

    I purchased it as a A. Seemanni...its really blue so It might be the blue color form. Unless it grows out of it???
    I've had black and brown before but not blue... 20180408_120207.jpg

    It's beautiful! I would guess blue form as well. Mine are much more brown.
