Moved for expert attention.
Moved from Jumping Spiders. Your images definitely show a Phidippus jumper. They have been sitting at the family level for some time and I've moved them to see if we can get further attention to their identity.

Moved from ID Request.

Its a jumping spider. Its dif
Its a jumping spider. Its difficult to tell much more from the small photo only editors can see full sized images everyone else sees a black photo with a tiny spider in the middle. Might I suggest cropping tighter on the spider and reloading the photo. Thanks.

Photo Quality
You should have seen the photo I started with before I cropped it this much. That's the best I could do at night with the camera I have, and if I crop it more and enlarge the cropped photo again the spider becomes more blurred. Sorry.
