wow...
That's a really cool ventral though- And I know with a lot of them, you can tell the sex from the ventral, not sure how to do this on this specific species, but someone else could probably tell... The rounded end to the abdomen is usually indicative of males from what I've seen, but I could be totally off base, so unless an expert confirms it, I would not make any changes. Still, sweet shot :)
