C. Versicolor Fresh Molt
@IncoherentScreeching Yes it's female. The picture is dark but there is a spermathecae flap. Small T.'s have very translucent spermathecae for females. A easy way to see it is to flash light under small spermathecae, which will make the spermathecae more visible. From experience with a load of male C. versicolor that I went through so far, this is a female for sure in comparison to all of my male molts. I know it's kinda confusing, but you'll understand once you get more experience in this hobby.
 
I do have a much lighter photo I took after you mentioned that this one is dark, and you're right; the spermathecae was much more visible. I already suspected female based off abdominal images, but this molt confirmed it.

While the molt is super small, I could feel the spermathecae with the tiny needles I used to open the abdomen.

I would happily post the lighter picture, but I'm not sure how to do so here in the comments.
