A large jumping spider either from the genus Hyllus or Evarcha. She is about 12mm in length. Mostly black in color, golden brown abdomen, legs covered in white hairs, white linings on it's side, 2 thick tuft of hairs pointing out from both side of it's forehead. Her muscular long legs are it's primary weapon.
On a banana plant in Poring Hot Springs, Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia. Ranau Poring Hot Springs is another place where there is an abundance of animal species.
This is one of the largest jumping spiders that I have ever seen, it is fairly brave too. It does not seem to be afraid of me nor the camera but it is very active, thus making it difficult to be photographed. >>>Map accuracy : 3km radius.
