I need to see the area just under the legs, where the tail becomes body. Or you can google "how to sex crayfish" and you will see s. Basically the males have a couple of extra bits (as per the usual).

It’s a male, as it has small spurs near the bases of the 3rd and 4th pairs of legs. Females don’t have those.
