Description

A fast moving attractive Swift Spider with black cephalothorax and abdomen, black and white banded hind legs and orange front legs. The body had white patterns along the sides, a median white line on the cephalothorax and broken white pattern along the midline of the abdomen. Its behaviour and erratic movements are a mimicry of the pompilid wasp - the orange legs move up and down like the orange antennae of the wasps.
