Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

The color was so crazy and metallic that I must find out the species of this spider plus I couldn’t find any pictures online matching it. The skull on its head is also a very cool detail.

It should be an Argiope argentata male. Argentata means silver-coloured or made of silver.
It’s easier to identify female specimens than male ones, but I’m pretty sure your belongs to that species.
