Male/female/adult/immature
Please only check these boxes when you are sure that the image shows these ages/sexes. I, for one, am not sure--these may all be adults, for instance, for all I know. Male armored scales tend to have smaller, more elongate coverings, and this particular image does seem to have both males and females based on that.

Feel free to post images directly to the guide when you're certain of the ID. Since yours are the only images we currently have for this genus, I don't see a need to frass any of them at this point. We can always weed some out later on.

 
Oy, sorry about that,
Charley. I didn't really intend to mark off immature (I wouldn't know if it came up and slapped me), but I was in something of a hurry. Also I now note I didn't put these directly into genus. Again, my apologies.
