More Info on this species
I've posted a web page on my site with more photos and a short video of a male appearing to do a display with his front legs. In a separate video, the male waves one last time, puts his front legs out like Superman and flies away.

ONH: Habronattus hirsutus

"Habronattus hirsutus. H. oregonensis has a notably swollen tibia.

"H. hirsutus is easily distinguished from other Habronattus in having the ventral surface of the first femur concave and shiny black, with a narrow greenish-yellow stripe along the anterior margin."
