Philaeus chrysops male Poda, 1761
Aranea: salticidae
Common names:

Philaeus chrysops is a small size jumping spider 7–12 millimetres (0.28–0.47 in) in lenght, but 5 mm small males do occur. Unusual for spiders, the males are often bigger. The sexes differ extremely: males are very colorful with a glaringly red opisthosoma (chrysops means "golden eye" in Greek). The males have a dark brown cephalothorax with two broad longitudinal white stripes behind the rear eyes. The abdomen is bright orange-red on the back and the sides, with a longitudinal black stripe in the center and black shoulders. The long, slender legs are dark with the patellae and most of the tibiae of the first two pairs bright orange-red. The cephalothorax of the female is similar to the male, but with much smaller white stripes (see in WS). The back of her abdomen is largely covered with a very broad brown band with two narrow longitudinal white stripes and a few white marks near the sides.
Distribution: warm places of the Palaearctic region, common in the Mediterranean, reaching into South China. Absent from the northern part of Europe.

Origin of name from greek mythology and language: Φίλαιος / Philaeus is the son of Αἴας / Aias or Ajax, king of Megara. He is the first of his family to become an Athenian citizen. Χρυσός / chrysos = gold and ὤψ / ops = eye, face.

Hi Nikos,a very difficult macro but not for you as i can see,ver small spider taken in a perfect way,the sharpness is impressive,interesting species! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Nikos, great macro of fantastic spider, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Wonderful picture of a Jumping Spider from dorsal perspective with fill flash, Nikos. The details and bright colours on its back are well captured, even though the eyes of a Jumping Spider are a preferred objective.

Hello Nikos,
Beautiful coloured Spider. Well captured with good details. Composition and POV could have been more attractive. But the way you wanted to show it, respect your choice.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards,
Srikumar
