"Females have a similar membrane to males' beard, but it is not visible when the gill membranes are closed."

Is what I read on a website, if it helps any. Do these "females" have the egg dot on their underside? I know some young males can have them too but it may help to determine.

Females will be missing the middle of the beard, so when they flare it'll look like a heart shape, best to go by that and body shape/pointier anal fin etc... it's so tricky though!
