Portia labiata (Jumping Spider)


Portia labiata

Portia labiata is a jumping spider (family Salticidae) found in Sri Lanka, India, southern China, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Singapore, Java, Sumatra and the Philippines. In this medium-sized jumping spider, the front part is orange-brown and the back part is brownish. The conspicuous main eyes provide vision more acute than a cat’s during the day and 10 times more acute than a dragonfly’s,and this is essential in P. labiata′s navigation, hunting and mating.
