Carrhotus xanthogramma


Carrhotus xanthogramma is a species of 'jumping spiders' belonging to the family Salticidae.

This species is present in most of southern Europe.

The adults of these jumping spiders reach approximately 5 millimetres (0.20 in) of length and they can mainly be encountered on bushes, where they actively pursue their preys, jumping on them.

The males of these species have a black bright head and an hairy reddish-orange abdomen, while the female's body is mostly brownish, with dark markings. They have eight eyes with very large anterior median eyes. Their eyesight is excellent and very useful in their way of hunting.
