Usually the males are smaller than the females...

On the ventral side and almost to the tail you will see a large ( relatively ), dark swelling with two small projections. This is the female. Males do not have this area.

The females are slightly larger. Their mating behaviors are quite different. The males [like most other males] tend to make a chase.
