English


I saw it crawling on the walls of my house, this is the calmest jumping spider I have ever seen. When I approached this spider, it didn't dodge a bit though it might remain vigilant. This is so different from the genus of jumping spiders that I usually see on grass or plants, they are the most difficult to approach because of excessive fear.

I thought it was the jumping spider of the genus Menemerus in the Salticidae family. This genus of spiders was first described by Eugene Louis Simon in 1868.

Menemerus is a type of spider that has a lot of hair on its body, slightly long hair is visible on the pedipalps. The jaw is shiny black. The abdomen is slightly rounded, some are oval but look fat.

Menemerus usually lives in narrow crevices in buildings, it will only come out crawling on walls when it wants to find prey. The convoy of small ants is its favorite target of prey.

Aku melihatnya sedang merayap di dinding rumahku, ini adalah laba-laba pelompat paling kalem yang pernah kulihat. Saat aku mendekati laba-laba ini, dia tidak menghindar sedikitpun walau mungkin tetap waspada. Ini berbeda sekali dengan genus laba-laba pelompat yang biasa kulihat di rumput atau tanaman, mereka paling susah untuk didekati karena ketakutan yang berlebihan.

Aku pikir itu laba-laba pelompat genus Menemerus dalam keluarga Salticidae. Genus laba-laba ini pertama kali dijelaskan oleh Eugene Louis Simon pada tahun 1868.

Menemerus adalah jenis laba-laba yang memiliki banyak rambut di tubuhnya, rambut yang agak panjang terlihat pada bagian pedipalpusnya. Rahangnya berwarna hitam mengkilat. Bagian perut agak membulat, sebagian ada yang lonjong tetapi tampak gemuk.

Menemerus biasanya tinggal di celah-celah sempit di bangunan, dia baru akan keluar merayap di dinding saat ingin mencari mangsa. Konvoi semut kecil adalah target mangsa yang paling dia sukai.
