This little jumping spider is always found in darker places like under bark and in the shadows around buildings. About 12mm long. This one is a male.
Found under a 'deck' in an outer urban back yard.
Used to be called 'Breda jovialis' but Breda is a Brazillian genus. Other common names are 'Australian Jumping Spider' and 'Jovial Jumpng Spider' although I have no reason to agree with the latter.

Name accepted now is Apricia jovialis
