How much is there? It could be something like a hard water stain or the likes. Or it could be something more serious. Is she still able to move her chelera (little mouth bits)?

Cheers,
Dave

Ok...this may sound hokey, but could it actually be crap, so to say?

The reason I ask is that many, many years ago, when I got my first African Flat Rock, I had provided too small of a rock crevice for it to retreat in to...but she tried.

The result was feces on her pedipalps and chelicerae from trying to seclude herself in such tight quarters that her metasoma was literally draped back over her head.
