Black jumping spider with white boxing gloves and yellow 'G' string. 8mm
This little spider made me laugh at least twice. First when he was scurrying about it could obviously see me and made things hard. Then I noticed it had this yellow 'G' string on and a pair of white boxing gloves that were working absolutely non-stop. I thought 'this one is some kind of joker !' ... then I found out his species name is jovialis. Apparently 'Breda' is a native to Brazil and therefore some suspect the Australian version to be a different species. This hasn't been proven yet so I have a theory that asergio sent these over just to confuse us.
UPDATE: name changed http://www.arachne.org.au/01_cms/details...
UPDATE: name accepted now is Apricia jovialis
