Female Heavy Jumper - Hyllus diardi


Hyllus is a jumping spider genus belonging to the family Salticidae. There are 72 species in this genus that have been described by arachnologists.

Hyllus adalah genus laba-laba pelompat yang termasuk dalam keluarga Salticidae. Ada 72 spesies dalam genus ini yang telah dideskripsikan oleh para ahli arakhnologi.


As a result of my observations, some species of spiders are commonly kept as pets by spider enthusiasts, particularly macro photographers. This spider, sometimes known as the "heavy jumper" or the "heavy jumping spider," is easily accessible in Indonesian online shops.

Hasil pengamatan saya, beberapa spesies laba-laba biasa dipelihara sebagai hewan peliharaan oleh para pecinta laba-laba, khususnya para fotografer makro. Laba-laba ini, kadang-kadang dikenal sebagai "pelompat heavy" atau "laba-laba pelompat heavy", mudah diakses di toko online Indonesia.


By coincidence, I found a Heavy Jumper crawling on my backpack this afternoon. When compared to jumping spiders from other genera, this one is rather huge.

Secara kebetulan, saya menemukan pelompat heavy merangkak di ransel saya sore ini. Jika dibandingkan dengan laba-laba pelompat dari genus lain, laba-laba ini agak besar.


It is golden yellow and has hairs that virtually cover its entire body, indicating that it is a Hyllus diardi spider species. Walkenaer was the first to describe this species in 1837.

Warnanya kuning keemasan dan memiliki bulu yang hampir menutupi seluruh tubuhnya, menunjukkan bahwa itu adalah spesies laba-laba Hyllus diardi. Walkenaer, adalah orang pertama yang mendeskripsikan spesies ini pada tahun 1837.



I'm also inclined to believe this is a female. What does the physical appearance of the male Hyllus diardi resemble? It's in my last post.

Saya juga cenderung percaya ini adalah perempuan. Seperti apa penampilan fisik Hyllus diardi jantan? Ada di postingan saya sebelumnya.





That's my explanation; if you have any additional knowledge regarding Hyllus diardi or the Hyllus genus, I'd be delighted to hear from you in the comments section. Thank you.

Hola, debido a un accidente con una de ellas desde chico le temí a las arañas (más allá de que es una de las fobias más comunes y hasta parece que parte de nuestra evolución como especie...). Gracias a Dios por medio de el estudio de la Naturaleza cada vez me parecen menos amenazantes, sobre todo esas fotos de las que hablas tú en las que muestran sus rostros. En ese sentido hasta parecen hasta simpáticas.
Leí por ahí que Aristóteles dijo o pensaba algo así como: "Es infantil rechazar con asco el estudio de los animales inferiores. Todo lo natural es maravilloso": por suerte cada vez les tengo menos miedo...

Hello, due to an accident with one of them since I was a child I was afraid of spiders (beyond the fact that it is one of the most common phobias and it even seems that it is part of our evolution as a species...). Thank God through the study of Nature they seem less threatening to me, especially those photos that you speak of in which they show their faces. In that sense they even seem nice.
I read somewhere that Aristotle said or thought something like: "It is childish to reject the study of lower animals with disgust. Everything natural is wonderful": luckily I am less and less afraid of them. ..

Jumping spiders, as far as I can tell, are not the type of spider you should be terrified of because they are human-friendly.

Thank you for your kind words, my friend.🙂

Thanks you too and regards!

I always like macro objects from spiders, their eyes are so beautiful 🤩👏

Yeah, that is the truth. Macro photography enthusiasts are always amazed by jumper spiders.😍
