Male?

[I'm back on my toes, so deleted the "I'm sick, woe is me" thread -- thanks for the reponses.]

Would you say this is a male Callilepis pluto? I think so but would like a second opinion or two.

Not sure (& glad you're feeling better!)
I don't really see any swollen palps... but maybe it's just the angle. The body proportions (cephalothorax to abdomen and the leg lengths) are reminiscent of a female, though, I think. Since it's from one of Rod's trips, you might be able to ask him personally what gender it was... or, the photo is Laurel Ramseyer's, you might ask her if she remembers. I have her email addy if you'd like it (though I've never talked to her before). Looks like that trip wasn't too long ago, so someone might remember.

oops, double post

Glad you are feeling better
I'm not sure about the spider. Did you see Rod's image of a female here?
