Took this on our patio in Kefalonia-nearest thing I can find is a red backed jumping spider but they seem to be native to North America

Saw the same spider on the same day today hiking the ancient volcano on the Methana Peninsula. Took a picture with the intent of uploading it here, but Paty beat me to it.
