Field Notes - This jumping spider was found on a leaf on our orange tree. But it’s shape and size it appears to be from the Simaethula Genus but I’m not sure which exact species. Also depending on the lighting the colour of its body would change. Seemed to mostly be a pinky, purple metallic colour.
