Courtship of Sarah's peacock spider (Maratus sarahae). This is the only footage of this species that exists to date. I found these specimens during a trip to the Stirling Range in September 2011 at a time when this species was still "unknown to science". Here is a paper that David Hill and I published subsequently about it http://peckhamia.com/peckhamia/PECKHA...
