Tutelina
This is a Tutelina species. And they seem to come in the full rainbow of colors. There are likely three species in TN. I favor hartii or elegans but I am not sure I have seen the first species.

 
What are the differences of t
What are the differences of the 3 species? I am tring to get at least one picture of every animal in the world (which will take forever), so I need to get all of them.

 
Differences
similis, hartii, elegans. I'm not sure what language Duperre's work is in, but Kaston has descriptions for all three species.

Good luck with your photo project. You've got just 9,000 more jumping spiders left and you can knock at least one arachnid family off your list! (You do want to get both sexes, right?) :-D
