Jumping Spider commented on by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 5 hours ago

To: Võ Anh Tuấn
Thank you very much for your very fast response to my request for help. I am amazed by how quickly you can do things. The leads you have provided (one from India and another from Thailand) are very helpful. The one from India has many similarities, but is not exact, but it does convince me that my specimen is from the Carrhotus Genus. That is a good start. Now, the one from Thailand is almost completely identical to mine, with only very small differences. So now I can revise my spotting in P.N. with more confidence. I will call it Carrhotus sp. for now. Thank you once again for all your help. Best regards, John B.
