Insect droppings?

Observed: 6th August 2011 By: deborah

Found on the kitchen table one morning. I have scoured the internet and found one similar observation, but no identification. The dots are shiny, like dried ink spots. Could it be some beetle or spider droppings?

    Likely ID
    Spider droppings
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
Species interactions

No interactions present.

Hi Deborah

Same here

This photo looks exactly like what I am finding on my hardwood floor under a plant by the window. I brought it in for the winter without re-potting. Mistake. It is now outside. I am pretty sure it is either a big spider or a big palmetto bug/cockroach. Eating my beautiful Rex begonia.

When I re-pot the plant, I am sure I will find out which one..

Will post.
