Let Ω be a domain in C with hyperbolic metric λΩ(z)|dz| with Gaussian curvature −4. Mejía and Minda proved in their 1990 paper that Ω is (Euclidean) convex if and only if d(z, ∂Ω)λΩ(z) ≥ 1/2 for z ∈ Ω, where d(z, ∂Ω) denotes the Euclidean distance from z to the boundary ∂Ω. In the present note, we will provide similar characterizations of spherically convex domains in terms of the spherical density of the hyperbolic metric.
