no. it is an ant mimicking spider! the spider looks like an ant because it eats ants, or it borrows the ants' reputation so other predators will leave it alone, or maybe for another reasonSo its not an ant?
http://www.smugmug.com/keyword/all/mimicking#105010251I know it's very difficult to see the AME's on this little fella' from the angle the picture was taken. If we could get a better pic of its face then we could easily confirm or reject Salticidae. Aren't Salticid's AMEs (on ant mimickers) very well camouflaged with the rest of the cephalothorax- to where you really can only see their shape instead of the average one's eyes that are very reflective?
Bulky and hairy palps in an ant mimicker don't help at all in family identification. Although I'm willing to accept the spider as a salticid, it wouldn't be on characters that don't have any ID'ing usefulness.oh come'on look at the pedipalps, its way too bulky and looks like hairy, it is a salticid.
