In my article, I mainly study males because I lack many females. I compare the male sangirensis with the male dilatoscapus because these 2 species are very close, but the sexual dimorphism is so great that it is not possible to know whether this female belongs to one or the other species. I have just compared under my magnifying glass a female from Sanghir Island with a male of each of the two species and the only thing (apart from the locality) that could indicate that it is A. sangirensis is the extent of the black coloration at the apex of the femurs.
Until a female dilatoscapus is discovered, I think it is safe to assume that this female must be sangirensis.
