Elegant Golden Jumper

Chrysilla Lauta


Size: 5mm. Probably not a fully matured one. Very colorful Sp. Found on a roadside bush.


Tropical forest and shrubs.


Spotted this one for probably the fourth time. Notes from wikipedia: The male is very slender. Its carapace is orange-red, with a narrow bluish-white, iridescent transverse stripe between the eyes. The robust chelicerae do not point forward. The long scutum of the opisthosoma is dark brown and covered with dense, bronze-colored hairs. The long legs are brownish-yellow, with the first pair, and the last segments of the others brown.
