The short note gives a new proof of the fact that a Walsh process is not adapted to any filtration generated by a Brownian motion. The proof generalizes to spider-type martingales (martingale araignée) in the sense that a martingale with respect to a Brownian filtration on a cob-web like structure (toile) is necessarily constant. The notions of martingale araignée and toile were introduced by M. T. Barlow, M. Émery, F. B. Knight, S. Song and M. Yor [in: Séminaire de probabilités XXXII. Lect. Notes Math. 1686, 264-305 (1998; Zbl 0914.60064)].
