As far as I know the cloaca only extends creating he ovipositor appearance when over fed. I have learned this from Kayla Griffin and we both know who that is ;)

If you look at the ventrals, they say male. They don't have the little "elbow" that female ventrals have.

If you look at female ventrals, they all have kind of a little bend to them that male ventrals don't. I call it the elbow. ^_^

It's just typically, from what I've seen, male ventrals are long and straight. Female ventrals can be long but they'll be shaped differently. *shrugs* Don't really know how to describe it.
