Title: Hyllus diardi couple
Specie: Hyllus diardi (Walckenaer, 1837)

Description: Hyllus diardi is the greatest jumping spider species in Vietnamese forest. It is outstanding not only in size but also in colour and general appearance. Often I see people being terrified and freaking out from spiders, and Hyllus is the best example showing these animals could be cute, fluffy, and beautiful. Drawings are done from living model during the field expedition. I believe it makes drawings more alive and interesting not only for scientists but also for people from other fields, and raises their curiosity about small living creatures that are often neglected in wildlife protection narrative.
