Jquery - How to find an element using class and attribute

I am trying to figure out the most efficient way to find my element. Following i smy structure:

<div class="a" customattrib="2">

in order to find this element can I do something like :

$("div.a [customattrib='2']")

This does not seem to work, is there another way to do this?

Without the class I am able to get the value but I do not think this is efficient enough for my structure:

$("div [customattrib='2']")


Remove the space:


By putting in the space, you're making it into a descendant selector which finds all elements that match [customattrib='2'] and are inside an element that matches div.a.
