Its about 1" and its on its back.
its laying on a small smooth piece of corkbark thats at a 45 deg angle or so. its fairly close to the side of the vial. i was wondering if this is normal.

From my meager experience, I would say it's alright. My spiderlings all molted upside down, although the angle was usually 0.

Perfectly ok. I have 60 or so emilia slings... I have seen them molt on their side, flat on their backs, right side up. They know how to do it. :cool:
Maybe she will be sporting some color after this molt.

They will usually molt where they are comfortable. They would not put themselves in a bad situation for a molt. My P. rufilata made a web hamock of the substrate at about a 45 and it molted out just fine.

Like the others have said, she(lets hope right?) will be fine. They know what they are doing, we can only assist in small ways, and one way is definately not during the molting process.
