A small jumping spider species which seems to be mimicking the appearance of a Chaerilus scorpion - species of small scorpions that live in tree barks and wood gaps. This jumper may be a smaller species of the Bavia genus, about 5mm in length. It has a striking similarity with the Indian Bavia insularis (suggestion by Atul). Also similar to the informal species - Bavia cf. kairali.
On low plants with wide leaves in Tawau Hills Park headquarters, Tawau, Sabah, Borneo.
