I fancy the 2nd picture is also a female, judging by the widely spaced anal appendages, but ... ?

I think you're right...

Yes, I think you have it. I put it down as male due to the colour (and the poor angle of the shot). The anal appendages are well separated though, so a female it almost certainly is.
