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.
Yes chunxingwong.. you are right..The spider in my photo looks similar to Opadometa fastigata.. But still i am not sure..:-( Have a look at the pic in this link..http://www.natureloveyou.sg/Minibeast-Sp...
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.
@Alice.. i dont think tis is a jewel spider.. Mayb itz a golden orb weaver in itz juvenile stage.. Tis was just 1" approximately..:)
This looks like a jewel. Reminds me of a spider pin I bought with a bit of Amber in it.
