Agree with Felix and Bayucca. This is very similar to the newly described Opadometa sarawakensis.

as far as I can remember, there's no blue spiders in the US, so seeing one is very nice. Good job, thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous spider! The Opadometa genus seems to contain some similar looking species.

I love this Spider, Great find, JojoDePeralta.
