Comments & ID Thoughts

Definitely a species of Jumping Spider. About 3 - 4 mm in length. Body is dorso-ventrally flat, and head is rectangular in shape when observed from horizontal level.

The chelicerae and 1st pair of legs are black in colour and bulky in appearance. The cephalothorax and abdomen have a distinct black colour pattern running through the middle, bordered by a cream colouration. The remaining pairs of legs have a black and white striped pattern.
