Comments & ID Thoughts

Shiny green almost like a Japanese beetle. Would turn when confronted with a gentle tap of my leg which leads me to believe it is a jumping spider of some sort.

Tutelina elegans (metallic gold jumping spider).
I have to say it is a very beautiful species


Hi, your image has been filed. See above image for ID. 🙂


I just found a spider like this dead on my curtains three days ago. It did look scary but small.
