_X8A6285 peacock spider Maratus speciosus

This peacock spider from Western Australia was previously known as Saitis speciosus but has now been included in Maratus. The orange hairs are only visible during the display. If you want to read the paper where this species is illustrated in more detail you can download Peckhamia 103.1 from here (might take a couple of minutes)

And to get an even better appreciation of these little spiders watch my movies
