Maratus griseus (Jumping spider)

Sometimes known as the 'House hopper'.

*Noted by moderator, April 2022:

This species has been updated in response to the publication of Hill, D.E., Otto, J.C. (2021, 24th February). Catalogue of the Australian peacock spiders (Araneae: Salticidae: Euophryini: Maratus), version 4, Peckhamia 148.4.

Details on Maratus griseus, formerly identified on NatureMapr as Hypoblemum griseum (now classified as a junior synonym) can be found on page 22. There are two photos, an image of reported distribution, statement on the history of ID, and an introductory description.

An older publication contains abundant images of specimens for Maratus griseus (or what was then accepted as Hypoblemum griseum) provided for reference:

Hill, D.E., Otto, J.C. & Whyte, R. (2019, 12th March). Australian jumping spiders of the genus Hypoblemum (Araneae: Salticidae: Euophryini). Peckhamia 180.1.
