Question Help me sex this azureus? (with pics)

I have four azureus - 2 males, 1 female, and this unknown. The frogs are around a year old. The unknown frog is physically larger than the males, and has smaller / narrower toe pads. However, compared with the known female in the vivarium, the unknown frog has a much less pronounced back arch.

Please take a look at the top-down, toe pad, and profile pictures and give me your best guesses as to the sex of this frog! Many thanks!

It still looks female to me, though it is not as clear as with some frogs.

It's either a female or a very robust male. Here's another picture of the frog's profile...

Yeah, that looks like plenty of back arch to be female and the toe pads sure are small for a male.

It looks female to me: back IS arched, small toe pads, and plump!

It looks very similar to my female azureus. I’d agree w everyone else. Toe pads are quite small.

*Update*

Watcher is female! Her back arch is more pronounced now a few months later. But the dead giveaway was her behavior! She's been pawing at the back of my known male and, I suspect, is the one who has been laying eggs.

Thanks all for your input to sex the frog, this one is definitely case closed!
