    C. cyaneopubescens by any chance? The spemathecae is definitely sclerotised so worth trying.

    Indeed. You know your spermathecae well. ;)

    Only problem is finding a MM. I’ve looked high and low with nothing to show for it yet. If anyone has any leads let me know!

    I guess I've looked at one or two over the years.
    Good luck with the breeding attempt if you do find a male. Any time I tried the past the female show no interest in mating and would just try and kill the male straight away.
