Paraplatoides sp.

Source: A personal letter from M. Bernard DUHEM Mnhn (> mail: bernard_duhem@yahoo.fr<) on: Salticid from New Caledonia. > Dear M. Proszynski, > Please, could-you give me your opinion on this painting, spider from New-Caledonia ? > Personally, i think that's Paraplatoides, because:- the body is flat and elongate (Holoplatys-like) > - there's not cephalic depressions between posterior lateral eyes > - they are spines on first tibia. It might be a new species or the female, unknow ?, of the Paraplatoides tenerrima ?
