Ant Mimicking Jumping Spider

Myrmarachne Sp.


Size: About 6-7mm (Incl. jaw). Black/Dark brown coloration. The size of the jaw measured almost the length of the body. Enormous fangs. Front parts of the legs were a bit transparent yellowish brown.


Tropical forests and gardens.


The weirdest looking Ant Mimicking Jumping spider I've ever seen. This was my first sighting of this sp. Found in JU campus, Savar, Bangladesh. The size of the fang is visible in the second image (About 50% crop of original)
