Dorsal looks male with the dark shade so I’m very confused!
I think that looks more female I’m sure there is a difference in the dark shade around the eyes that makes them sexually dimorphic, females having more and covering more eyes if you can see what I mean where as the males will have a sharper angle on the darkness coming through the eyes, I’m definitely no expert but have had a few P Regalis you will definitely be able to tell a difference in the next couple of moults as the Male gets very washed out and dull and you will hardly notice the markings

I'd say it looks female dorsally but I am going off of the abdominal stripe. Males usually have a more prominent stripe than females....females stripes/pattern are broad and not as dark. Poecies are a bit more difficult to sex for me, ventrally but if they are at least 3+" you can go off of their dorsal pattern. I could be wrong. I make mistakes, too, lol. Sure fire way of telling is to check the molt! :)

So everything points towards female. So looks like it is infact female, only sure way to tell is with a moult or maturity.
