Moved from Paraphidippus aurantius. This is a male Eris, rather. Probably Eris militaris, but will leave at genus level for now as I can't remember if there are any distinguishing field marks to tell E. militaris from E. flava, the other species in your area. It can help to post spiders that you're unsure of under the order section (here) or, in the case of jumpers, sometimes experts check the family Salticidae section.

Thanks, Mandy!
Thanks for correcting my error. I can't remember why I thought this was Paraphidippus aurantius, but I'm glad you caught my mistake!

No problem!
I stumbled on it purely by accident, so figured might as well move it while I was there. No biggie! :-)
