Jumping spider


This photo was taken in Bengkulu Indonesia. A jumping spider is walking on a bract of my pink bougainvillea. The jumping spider got his name from its ability to jump more than 40 times the length of its body. The jumping spider usually has eight eyes, but i can see only six of them in this jumping spider. Jumping spider is from the family of Salticidae that contains more than 500 described genera and about 5,000 described species. But, unfortunately, i don't know what the species name of this Bengkulu jumping spider is.
