The cutest of all spiders, the jumpers (Salticidae) do have 8 eyes (not 6), though difficult to see.
Obviously the 2 headlights at the front & 2 side parkers. Going on top of the head, theres a nearly invisible pair, and finally the pair a the back. (2-2-4). Our Bronze Aussie Jumper (Helpis cf minitabunda) probably shows all 8 the best.
