Remarks
Numerous images of western juvenile Phidippus spp., many of which may never be IDed to species level.

Many Western species are extremely similar in appearance as juveniles, and some go through significant color and pattern changes at each instar, mainly the latter instars.

Others may show traits that make tentative or definitive ID possible, however.
