decided it was female by the more rounded behind!
No interactions present.
What are the 'more reliable features' i used the shape of the abdomen because on the id card i was using that was the most obvious difference, but instead of saying female or male it had those signs, which ive obviously got mixed up!!
By the way, how do you know when youve got a comment without having to scroll down all your observations!!!!
>>>What are the 'more reliable features'<<<
The gaster of females is always pointed. That of males is either slightly blunter or clearly truncate, depending on the species. Males always have longer antennae, and with a bit of practice this is often the easiest way to use in the field.

When logged on, try 'My spot' (top left), and 'Changes'. That will list all changes to any observations in which you have an interest since your last (logged-on) visit.
