  3. Do you have a top view? Posted 9 months ago
    1. Unfortunately I don't have the top view, but I do have slightly side view, will upload and link it here.
      From the description what has been mentioned in the Spiders of India pdf, and the wiki link above this is a pretty close match.

      Between, may I know your good name please? WildFlowerWildFlower :)

      1. The description is not so detailed. It is always important for the identification of insects and spiders to have a top view. You can upload the other photo from the link below here so we have it for reference but the pattern of the abdomen is not clear. There are so many species of jumping spiders out there, I would not be confident in making an identification from these photos.
        My name is Ani :)
