Your letter to the bugman:  Hi, I found this jumping spider outside of my condo in São Paulo, Brazil. I cannot find anything similar to it online. Can you please help me identify it. It looks like it has an Iron Man helmet in its abdomen.

Jumping Spider

Dear Carlos,
Other than agreeing that this is a Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, we cannot add much more except that it appears to be a male.  Perhaps our Brazilian coeval Cesar Crash of Insetologia will recognize the species.
