Thank you so much Ashley and team Project Noah for this selection... :-)
Even though very conspicus, very little information is available about this spider. Only males are reported. From India, many sightings and photos are there but no confirmed report till now. And there are identification that these spiders are another species altogether. Maybe Phintella voloupe.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
