Peacock Jumping Spider?

Hi guys. Found this little jumping spider in Redhill Brisbane while hedge trimming just wondering if its a type of peacock spider??
Congratulations mate you've found a peacock jumping spider! I checked on Spidentify and couldn't find which one but damn that things a beauty! I have seen them around Capalaba as well
 
Unfortunately no that’s not a peacock spider (Maratus sp), it’s a Cosmophasis sp jumping spider which is just as cool a find IMO. Most likely Cosmophasis micarioides
 
Yea Dennis is correct actually, definitely Cosmophasis sp.
They still look incredible especially the cyan and black ones
 
That is one cool looking little jumper. Here in Ohio all ours are blacks and whites or earth toned.
