They are cleverly caught by Gnathopalystes species ( Huntsman spider) .I was really surprised to see , How this Huntsman spider caught Three of them. Slightest movement will make these flies allert.Still This spider has managed to catch three of them . We can also see a dragline in between neem leaves. This spider came back to neem leaf, where flies are roosting & again caught the roosting flies !

Harmochirus sp - nest and egg sac

These tiny jumping spiders are usually found on the ground amongst leaf litter.

As expected I found this mother Harmochirus jumping spider and her egg sac/nest on the ground amongst the grass. The egg sac was inside a curled dry Lantana leaf.

She was kind of anxious. Walking all over the egg sac and occasionally going inside the opening of the nest as well. Perhaps the egg sac is inside the nest here.

About 1 inch spider with a unique 'trap-door' like web built about 6 feet on a tree trunk next to a stream deep inside the rainforest. Upon removing the 'lid' the natural cavity was lined with fine silk (hence the blue tinge due to the flash). No photo prominantly showing eye-pattern, one image produced here photographed by Rohit Nandakumar. Identification is tentative, because this family is not reported from anywhere in India except the Himalayan region.
