Spider spotting

Description:

Really small, neon green "hug-spider" (check width of my finger to scale).

Habitat:

Spotted it out on the fields next to a forest block.

Notes:

Is it a spiderling or juvenile specimen? Would need help in ID!

Yes. It was only a green dot on a green scene, still was very easy to spot.

Hi OT!

Thanks for suggestion and comment!
I would vote for a juvenile Ebrechtella tricuspidata female.

Now let's see!

It's not fully grown yet, so it's hard to tell for sure. The shape of the abdomen resembles Diaea, but it may also be a juvenile Ebrechtella tricuspidata.
