Adanson's Jumping Spider

Hasarius adansoni


Females grow up to 8 millimeters in length, males up to 6 millimeters. The males are mostly black, with a red "mask" and pedipalps that are partly white. A white crescent is present on the back part of the abdomen, and another one on the front part of the opisthosoma. There are two small white dots on the posterior back, and two even smaller ones towards the end. These white areas - especially on the pedipalps - have a nacre-like iridescence. Females are dark brown, with a lighter and somewhat rufous opisthosoma.
