As Harmochirus is a genus of the spider family Salticidae (jumping spiders). The tibia and femur of the first pair of legs swollen and first leg always kept up in a defensive position. Because of the unique structure of the first pair of legs and their peculiar way of movement, this spider can be easily distinguished from other salticids. A closer view of the first pair of legs, shows a row of fringed hairs on the ventral and dorsal sides of the tibia, 3 and 2 pairs of ventral spines present on tibia and metatarsi respectively.
