Spotted this one for the first time and probably first sighting in Bangladesh. Could not locate the female.. :-(

Thank you Jonathan! Well your spotting is fabulous!! It is a jumping spider for sure but it would be hard for me to suggest a definite ID. My study and cross-matching work has majorly been on the Asian Species. But I'll certainly look for any close match.. :-)
