Does anyone know what type of spider this is? I found it in Sri Lanka.

Hi all, I came across this really pretty spider whilst on working in a fairly remote location in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago and wondered if anyone knows what it is? I appreciate the picture isn't great but you can make out the colours. It was about 3 to 4 mm so really small but it was really shiny. The area where I found it was surrounded by fields and next to a river. I was working with elephants so there were plenty of people around most of the time even though the location was fairly remote. I've tried to find info on what it was just out of curiosity as I've never seen anything like it, even though I've travelled in Asia a few times. If anyone knows how to attach the picture let me know!! The link isn't working for some reason, but it had a blue head with a red stripe, purple legs and a copper coloured abdomen.

 

Thanks in advance
