Both sexes have full length wings on that species. All you should have to do with adults is take a glance at the abdomen. Females have a much larger "horn" on the head.

Turn it over. Females have a wide abdomen with six segments and it ends in a downward point. Males have a thin abdomen ending in a "cup" shape structure that faces upwards. The abdomens of male and female adults look quite different. It is easy to tell at a glance.
