Try going to wikia.com and go to the "Make an New Wiki" page. On the wiki name Type down "Jumping Spider". The page will show a note that there is already a wiki with the name you typed. That note has a link. Click on the link and you'll be at the website. Hope this helps.

Hi, Erik! Thanks for your efforts on Wiki! Would you mind, please, to add a link of your wiki site as a comment here on this spotting, just wondering about your site.

OK, Corythalia as genus is already confirmed! Gina Bodner thinks that it really might be Corythalia opima, but she will check some of her sources to verify and hopefully confirm! I am very happy and pleased, that so much experts are helping us to get the correct ID on Project Noah. Thanks again, Gina!

Corythalia opima could be a match:

I try to get a confirmation...
Doc, can you just take a quick glance to this one? Do you agree with the genus? Any IDea of the species? What about Corythalia opima?
