~ 2,5 - 3,5 cm bodylength

A very fast and beautiful hunsman spider from the Indonesian island of Flores. This species is often mistaken for and sold as H. dagmarae. The sexes can already be distinguished in juvenile age. While the females have a simple, velvety and brownish carapace and opistosoma, the males are rather dark in color and show a clear contrast in the pattern. They prefer a warmer and humid environment.
