jumping spider - Evarcha hoyi

jumping spider - Evarcha hoyi
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA

Moved from Evarcha.

Beyond that it gets confusing. Notes at the top of E. Hoyi indicate possible synonymy with E. Falcata. Notes at the bottom of E. proszynskii assumes synonymy and suggests revision.

I'm confused. How about lumping everything under Evarcha murrayi? :-)

It sure does look like a confusing bunch. Lumping them together would simplify visual identifications. I like the suggested name, but somehow I don't think it'll fly. :-)

This has a Pelegrina feel to it but I don't know what species.
