We have identified this as a subadult Phidippus audax. If this is correct, should it be placed in typical or atypical?

Moved from Typical variations.

I'm rearing P. audax from Texas that look just like this one at about 5mm in body length. This one is almost certainly P. audax, but being so young, I prefer to leave it at the genus level.

Moved from Phidippus regius.

looks more like a juvenile P. regius.

Right on target,
as usual. Images have been moved to species page.
Thanks Jeff,

band on the OQ of the carapace is a young regius trait.
