Siler Semiglaucus?


A tiny jumper (About 5mm). Colorful body with orange pattern on the abdomen. Mimics ants. The front pair of legs are raised frequently to mimic the antennas of an ant.


Mango trees and bushes in tropical areas.


Very restless. Keeps moving all the time and very difficult to shoot.

This spider has something to say! :) great spot Raiyan Ahmed.

No wonder it preys on big ants, though I don't find that it mimics ants as good enough as the myrmarachne.
By the way, I agree that Siler Semiglaucus is the most likely species.
