Sex?

What am I missing Peter? I thought it was a Female, is it in fact an immature Male?

Thanks

Immature male

Richard, your excellent photograph shows details of male anal appendages and, with careful examination, you can also just see the secondary genitalia on the ventral surface of abdominal segment 2.
