What spider is this

Hi

I am currently on holiday in Morocco and found this lively little guy about the size of a 20p coin. The little fella jumped some distance when surprised. Any idea what type of spider it is as never seen one with markings like this before.

TIA

    It's a jumping spider (Salticidae). I suspect it's a male Plexippus paykulli which is a very widespread species, but that pattern of longitudinal stripes is common amongst jumping spiders so I'm not totally sure.
