The presence of a spermatophoric sac in males and the orange or pink color of the accessory nidamental gland in females indicated the mature stage (Richard 1967; Riad 1993).
Besides indices, 1 of 3 maturity stages was assigned to the specimen collected in different seasons based on the color of accessory nidamental glands and size of the gonads according to Lipinski (1979).
