Green Legs & Red Face - Habronattus pyrrithrix - male

Green Legs & Red Face - Habronattus pyrrithrix - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 30, 2015
Size: 4.5mm Body
These are images of a Jumping Spider that I believe is most likely an adult male Habronattus pyrrithrix. I'm including extra views of his interesting legs. (Note the white spots on the knees of his fourth legs and the grayish coloration on the carapace)
The abdominal striping and the red faces are fairly consistent features of this species. The adult males develop some greenish coloration on the legs.
Compare the smaller and younger version of this species, that I filmed a few days beforehand. (different specimen): ♂
