well right now I not sure if my p. Metallica is male or female yet it about 2in. leg span right now and it molted about 2 weeks ago but the molt is small a little over a in. I believe I didn't have a magnifying glass and couldn't get the abdomen of the molt opened up enough to tell what sex it was. but hopefully I will be able too the next time it molts though.
Try and buy a mini microscope,I bought one exactly for the reason of sexing smaller molts. Also,if the molt has dried out place it on a piece of glass and mist it with a spray bottle it will expand again for easier handling.
