Might be a moult and not a dead hermit? Are the eyes clear?

Yes I thought it might have been a moult. Didn't think of checking at that point in time though.

In any case, I pretty much treat moults of crustaceans, insects and horseshoe crabs as if they are the actual carcasses, hence they qualify for Monday Morgue.
