Moved

Jeff Hollenbeck reports
that this is more likely P. mystaceus. Apparently the three markings on the carapace are diagnostic. Should we move these?

 
Definitely Phidippus otiosus
This is P. otiosus, not P. mystaceus

 
Yes
Amazing, the abdominal pattern matches almost exactly with P. otiosus, but sure enough, those carapace markings seem to indicate P. mystaceus. Please move, and thanks so much for the correction!

 
Definitely Phidippus otiosus
This is definitely a Phidippus otiosus, and not P. mystaceus.
