Bold Jumping Spider?

Description:

About half a centimetre. Black spider with light stripes on abdomen, head and legs. A small red w-shaped patch on upper part of abdomen (that led me to call it the wu-tang spider). Reddish "feet." This guy wasn't bothered by me following him (or her) around as it chased prey around a pyramid in southern Mexico.

Habitat:

Found on a ruin at Calakmul Biosphere Reserve. Sub tropical jungle

Notes:

Possibly a Bold Jumping Spider. Two things make me question this though, the first being the size, I understand bold jumpers are quite big. This could be a young one though. The second question I have is the location. The range of the bold jumping spider doesn't seem to extend this far south, this specimen was found at Calakmul, close to the Guatemalan border...
