Help me ID this species


This spider is a metallic green that changes to purple according to the way the light hits it. It hung out on my arm for a while. Didn’t seem aggressive.


This was on my patio. I live in Isla Mujeres, a small island 7km from the coast of Cancun, in the Mexican Caribbean.


Looked like some kind of jumping spider


It is so small. Nice spotting.
