large spider, blue and red abdomen
tropical rainforest, 700m
It's not a great photo, but I only spotted this once in Malaysia in Maliau basin.
Thanks Chun, nice to see it get a species name. I've updated.
Good news Dan!
This species is finally described just last year as "Opadometa sarawakensis".
I am still amazed how beautiful and majestic this spider is and yet it is still undescribed until now.
Thanks for the ID Ignacio.
