Female Habronattus are typically morphologically different from their male counterparts (aside from the primary sexual differences), lacking the various courtship-related adornments that most males possess. Females are most often various shades of brown, with either marked or unmarked dorsal surfaces (cephalothorax and abdomen). Females of different species groups can be recognized by eye (with practice), but distinguishing females of the same species group typically involves examination of the microscopic external genital opening.
