My best guess is Marengo species.
So far none are recorded from Bangladesh.
Here is a similar species from Sri Lanka http://salticidae.org/salticid/diagnost/...

Hello. Really? First spotting record for Bangladesh? Cool. I edited your scientific name because that space is reserved (for scientific name). Normally to signal that a species is "unidentified" you just leave the space for Scientific name blank and check "Help me ID this species". If you want to use a family name in Scientific name you can, but it will show up as identified when you try to filter between identified and unidentified spottings on the organisms page because the software reads the scientific name as being filled. Anyway, if a family name or above is used it implies that the spotting has not been identified to species. Just a quirky thing here too: If a reference link space is used, the software also interprets that the spotting is identified because that's what those link spaces are for. You can add links to the description and notes if they are not specific to the species level and you want to avoid the spotting as appearing ID'ed because of those links. Whew!
