Are you talking about the little cream-ish color band on the abdomen? It should have it at 6"..

If your talkin about the band I am thinking of.. You will only see it ventrally.. It wont wrap around the whole abdomen..

I think either you aren't looking in the right place (on the spider) or you don't have the species you think you do. Can you take a picture of her underside the next time she's up on the glass and post it here? That'll get it sorted.

All adult Poecilotheria regalis will have a sub abdominal band located on the ventral side of the abdomen.If your unsure what species you have post some photos of the underside and leg banding and we can tell you what species it is ;]
