Ant-mimic jumping spider - Peckhamia

Ant-mimic jumping spider - Peckhamia
Victoria Glades Conservation Area, Jefferson County, Missouri, USA
May 26, 2018
Presuming this is a species of Peckhamia, but please correct if necessary. Very difficult to photograph - I was beating post oak and it fell on my sheet, I managed to coax it onto a leaf but IT. JUST. WOULD. NOT. STOP. RUNNING! I finally resorted to just trying to track it through the lens and firing off shots as I could (not easy with an MP-E65!) and ended up with two at least serviceable images. Very cool critter!
