P.ornata sexing differences

Thought I would post a comparison between immature female and male Poecilotheria ornata.
You can clearly see the differences on the carapace markings (Lack of markings on the male) and the clear white outline on the females folio on the abdomen.

I only really rely on ornata to sex this way. The others can throw curve balls. I look more at shading and patterns than colours...

You can make an educated guess, but it's not guaranteed as these pokies do throw a curve ball every now and again.
