Yes, they look similar indeed.
Opadometa fastigata is also recorded in "Spiders of India" guide book.
EOL has a record of this species but Wikipedia doesn't have any.
I hope there is a trusted reference we could use.

I don't know about this species but I do know one spider that looks similar to it, it is the Opadometa fastigata. Probably they are from the same genus.

This looks like a jewel. Reminds me of a spider pin I bought with a bit of Amber in it.
