Identification? I think this is a Phidippus Adumbratus - ? - Phidippus adumbratus - Female
Valley Center, San Diego County, California, USA
July 24, 2010
Size: 11 mm
Very funny spider - full grown jumper. She watched me for 30 min. - I was outside on the patio sitting at a table in the shade, reading a new cookbook I received, and she watched me turn every page. I put the book down on the table, and when she knew I wouldn't hurt her, she came over and surveyed every inch of the cookbook. Very curious! As I write this, she's now watching me type and I fully expect her to be on my keyboard any moment. She is the largest jumper I've seen - approximately 11 mm. I have a lot of these, and I'm assuming she's an Adumbratus.
