Have seen this spider before but cannot pinpoint the name of it.

Thanks Lanzz. Yes it has some similarities but it does not occur in New Guinea. There's only one recorded species of the genus in NG: gazellae, but I can't find any clear images...

Look like Fighting Jumping Spider (♂) - Thiania bhamoensis...
