Small salticid (4mm body length), black (the blue sheen is only visible depending on light, as can be seen in picture #3) with bright orange markings (warning colours?) and light brown legs; the first pair of legs is much longer than the others; the palps are "hairy" and it has only six eyes. Does anyone have any information on this guy?
Coastal area with rainforest in tropical climate, just outside of the town Lenakel, on Tanna Island - Vanuatu. I saw this little guy jumping around in my hut.
I haven't been able to find out much about the arthropods of Vanuatu, as they seem virtually unexplored. Anyone with similar sightings, I'd love to hear from you.
