regal jumper - Phidippus regius
Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida, USA
October 25, 2016
Large spider, approximately the size of a quarter/half dollar including legs. Found at Hanna Park near beach dunes.

Moved from Jumping Spiders.

P. regius
Location and huge size indicate regius. Body style and black and white markings indicate a male. Positive ID could be made if chelicerae are blue-violet in color. Have any more pics?

P. regius
Thanks for your help! Unfortunately this is the only picture I have, and I did not ask the spider to smile for the camera.

Phidippus sp.

Thanks! Do you think it could be a hybrid regius x audax?
