Flat-white Jumping Spider - Arasia mollicoma


This page contains pictures and information about Flat-white Jumping Spiders that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Body length 6mm
The spider has a flatten body and crab style legs look like a Huntsman Spider.  Its body shape is very different from other jumping spider. We know it is a jumping spider only when looking at its eyes, which are arranged in a typical jumping spider's way.
