Distinguishing features of this spider, in addition to its overall body and shape and colour, are three pale bands on its abdomen and the pattern
of small iridescent green spots on the front parts of its body and inner leg segments.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some other corinnids (especially Poecilipta species) as well as several members of the Family Zodariidae.
