Hottentotta jayakari 3351D1B51832516829F72A51682824

Here is the shot i used to sex her as female due to pectine tooth count. Can someone confirm as I have had a few say its a male

Leaning towards female here. You can get a definite answer at 7th instar:

Thanks for sharing your pics, I like the pectine shot.

Out of the blue i found a guy selling an pair of H jayakaris. This is the femaleĀ 
It looks a bit different to my fifth instar and was wondering if it is in fact a jayakari and how do i tell if it is an adult?

Could you please resize your images?
These will appear cropped in smaller displays, so my suggestion it not to go much over 800px width.

DolbyR is right. Do note of the image resolution for future uploads Smile

Image has been fixed. It is indeed a Hottentotta jayakari,

Need to know the size to estimate it's age(adult or not) and sexing is more accurate via the pectine shot or the chela comparison which was mentioned earlier.

Thanks for fixing the shot. Will try and get an underside shot of it. The male is very slightly larger than the female and apparently he showed no interest in mating. I am hoping she will moult once more and then be more receptive.

The other one is slightly larger and was meant to be the male but i am not seeing the typical indentation in the chelae. I will try and post a pic of the other one tomorrow

If it is a male, that "typical indentation" should be presence, but at 7th instar.

He's probably a 6th instar. Any chance that you have a measurement on the mesosoma length? Pectine tooth count points to male right I assume.
