This is a Cyrtarachne spider.
The closest species I could find is Cyrtarachne inaequalis which is not found in India.

Oh ok! It doesn't really matter which one you choose to delete. You can keep the one that's already in the mission, or you can delete it and add this second spotting to the mission - just go into your 'Edit this spotting' link and add the mission from the drop-down list. (I hope that's clear, let me know if you need further explanation.)

i uploaded that second one for "Spiders of India" mission.should i delete it?

Hi Saswata, welcome to Project Noah! This is an amazing spider, I have never seen anything like this before. Hopefully someone can help you with the ID! (I can see that you have uploaded this spotting twice, maybe a computer error? You can delete the second one - when you go into the spotting, click on 'Edit this spotting' and then choose 'Delete' down the bottom.)
