Description: Female plumber than male, which is smaller, darker and with a greenish metallic lustre. Both sexes with two or three pairs of usually distinct white spots at the posterior end of abdomen. The male has a transverse row of white hairs above the anterior row of eyes, while in the female this row is below the row. Size: Female 5-6 mm; male 4.5-5 mm.

Genus: Dendryphantes C. L. Koch, 1837.

Family: Salticidae Blackwall, 1841 (Jumping spiders). Characters of family: Small to medium-sized, shortlegged spiders easily recognizable by the characteristic eyes arranged in three rows. The anterior row of eyes is situated on a more or less vertical face, the medians being very large, the laterals somewhat smaller and set higher on the head. The second row of eyes consists of two very small, often minute or vestigial eyes set further back on the head. The two eyes of the posterior row are about the same size as the anterior laterals, and are set about halfway back on the carapace at the edges of the head. The anterior medians are highly sophisticated providing acute vision used to leap accurately while moving around as well as capturing prey and escape efforts.
