Peckhamia americana (Salticidae) - Peckhamia americana -
Lake Tawakoni State Park, Hunt County, Texas, USA June 18, 2010 Size: 4mm
I found this freeloader in my trailer upon returning from Lake Tawakoni State Park. I presume it hitchhiked on my equipment, which I often placed on the ground. Appears to be an adult female. The spider is very feeble and likely to die soon.
