You need a better quality pic to tell. How big is she? If I had to guess I'd say premolt just based on it's chela size, it doesn't seem to be mature yet

I agree. I could only found a website saying that they grow to 1.5 inches long, but that seemed pretty small to me. If that is true, it could be close.

Hmmm...well then it's 50/50 for me. This is a pretty small species but I would wager bigger than 1.5. Gets us a better picture if possible otherwise...it's just a waiting game.

+1. Either way, humidity is important.
