Such a beautiful spider. I like the common name “Sun Bear Spider” and can see the resemblance. I googled it but only found people using “Sand Bear Spider” for A. perita – I added both to the info. page and have “Sand Bear” as the name that shows up over the images because that’s the one I saw people using but can change it to “Sun Bear” if you think that one is more appropriate.
