Centronopus calcaratus
Yes. It also indicates that it is Cen. calcaratus, a species that you have photographed and had identified before.

 
Yes, thanks.
I already figured that out in looking at the earlier postings for this species by Tom and me, in which you said the inner tibial tooth indicates male. I just needed to see if the inner surface of the front femur had an abundance of golden setae. I've just finished a marathon shoot the first subject for which was an upsidedown spead-eagled male and it does indeed bear these patches of long golden setae in the sought location.

That image will be posted in due time. There are more exciting ones to post first :-)
