Hi guys,

So, my T (Chilean Rose) molted a couple of weeks ago. But her abdomen is still shiny... Is she premolting already?

What do you guys think, premolting?

Thank you,
Kenneth

That shiny spot is called a 'mirror patch'.

This is a reflective area on the abdomen where urticating setae is growing.

It will look like it is going to burst if premolt at this size.
