A new salticid spider species Uroballus carlei n. sp. (♂) from Hong Kong is dia­gnosed, described and illustrated. The species is unusual for the jumping spiders in its striking resemblance to lichen moth larvae. A brief discussion of the putative caterpillar-mimicry in some Uroballus species is provided as well. Диагностирован, описан и иллюстрирован новый вид пауков-сальтицид Uroballus carlei n. sp. (♂) из Гонконга. Внешним видом этот паук сильно напоминает личинок лишайниц, что необычно для пауков-скакунчиков. Также дается краткое обсуждение предполагаемой мимикрии некоторых видов Uroballus с гусеницами.
