Colorado Jumping Spider - Phidippus tyrrellii

Colorado Jumping Spider - Phidippus tyrrellii

Size: Body, 10mm
Genus:Phydippus:?, male:?, Specie:not a clue.

Moved from Jumping Spiders.

What a beautiful jumper! I couldn't let is pass so . . .
I spent some time with Edwards, 2004 and the Peckhams, 1909. This is likely Phidippus tyrrelli. The descriptions in both seem to match the photograph and Edwards gives nearly a dozen records for Colorado.

Thank you
P tyrrelli was my first match.There must be so many morphs for each specie. Thank you Dick.

Moved for expert review.
Moved from ID Request.
Nice one.

Just thinking out loud
My first thought was a Phidippus adumbratus, but I don't see any listing for Colorado. Maybe something along the Phidippus Genus?

My second choice
P adumbratus was my second match, specially reading that is found in alpine regions. Thank you Bill.
