Jumping Spider

Carrhotus sannio


Salticidae; Heliophaninae; Carrhotus sannio Thorell, 1877. This little jumping spider has been one of my favourites for several years now. For much of that time, I called it a male Carrhotus sannio (based on information back in 2017 from a web site which is now defunct). Since I no longer had a good citation, I started referring to this spider as Carrhotus sp. However, I have had a comment from bayucca, suggesting that it is Carrhotus sannio. On some further checking, I can now say that I am pretty sure that C. sannio has been the correct identification all along. So I am amending this spotting and will also fix the others I have posted on Project Noah.


This Carrhotus sannio was spotted this morning around 8:00 am, on a pot plant just inside the front gate of our house.

Hi bayucca, thank you for your comment. As you can see, I had originally noted this one as Carrhotus sannio a long time ago, but my source website is no longer available on the internet and I have not yet found a good reliable source to use as a citation. So I am rather stuck with Carrhotus sp. Your comment seems very positive. Do you have a link I could look at ? Thanks, John B.

Hi John B, I got a quick photo (a little unclear) of a similar looking spider in NE Thailand the other day. I wasn't going to post it as it wasn't easy to ID and it was coming up as a Pantropical Jumper (plexippus paykulli) . So I will post now for you to look at.
