This has to be one of the most beautiful huntsman spiders I've ever seen. Both Olios and Heteropoda species are worth considering. Congrats on your 200th spotting too.

Yes, from Australia and that too a very recent find. Apparently it is still a live specimen in a museum. I was wondering if we have similar species in India..colours are very tiger-like :)
I agree with Wild Things... better to leave it at Family level.

Looks like a huntsman spider from the family Sparassidae. The reference given by Sukanya is of a spider from Australia. There are chances that this might be the same one but it would be better to leave the ID to the family. Maybe some experts should look at it?

The vibrant colours of this spider attracted me....but I could not find any matches at the spider ID sites I usually check. Then, I found this write up. The first illustration is quite similar to yours but obviously not identical. Maybe you would like to read this: http://www.minibeastwildlife.com.au/reso...

Hi Pradeep! I'm not sure what species this is, just maybe in hunstman family, Sparassidae.. But I think this is not a jumpring spider as you add this spotting to jumping spider mission.. Cheers :)
