Gorgoglione, Province of Matera, Basilicata, Southern Italy.

Date of discovery: 13 September, 12 noon.
Habitat: 300 m - on the guardrail, at the edge of the provincial road, in the shade of a tree and shrubs. Then there are cultivated fields and areas with bushes and shrubs, a few scattered trees.
Dimensions: about 4-5 mm.

This Salticidae looks like this female of Salticus mutabilis featured in the wiki:

Thanks.

That could be possible. However, it could just as well be Salticus unciger female. Both species cannot be distinguished purely habitually. And you already know that S. unciger also occurs in your area  ;)
