Default Another Mutation/Gender Question

Could someone please tell me the color and mutation of Lime? I think he is a Light Green Greywing, but not for sure. I know what the two blue ones are and that they are both female, but is Lime male or female?

You have a greywing light green. The green is quite bright so it could be a full body greywing. I'm fairly sure that it is female but your photo is not at a good angle to be certain. The shade of blue is not right for a male

Oh we posted at the same time nev Yes Lime is a very bright green color which is why I wasn't certain, full body greywing crossed my mind too. His cheek patches are a faint blue and his spots are grey if that makes a difference.

Thank you for the gender guess as well. The shade of blue is what had me confused. There are faint white circles around the nares, but you have to be very close to see them. I wasn't sure what a male that was not in breeding condition would look like either since I've never really had a comparison to look at. For some reason I've always had females, or males who's ceres did not change.
