    Peacock spider or Gliding spider (Maratus volans), a species of jumping spider, is confined to eastern parts of Australia (Queensland, New South Wales). The red, blue and black colored males have flap-like extensions of the abdomen with white hairs that can be folded down. They are used for display during mating: the male raises his abdomen, then expands and raises the flaps so that the abdomen forms a white-fringed, circular field of color.

Meet the Peacock spider (Maratus volans) - a species of jumping spider native to eastern Australia. Only 5mm in length, it is only the males that have this bright colouring.

It's the most gorgeous spider of all — Maratus volans, or the "peacock spider."
