Phidippus cardinalis

Phidippus cardinalis
St. Lucie County, Florida, USA
May 20, 2006
Size: 4mm
Note the red chevrons and border along the basal band; the beginnings of the adult coloration-


It is believed the yellowish tan coloration of the young helps them blend in with grasses, as is the case with specimens from Flat Island in Lake County, FL. for example.

This local population (20 immature specimens observed in a 20 - 30 sq. ft. area; none observed outside this area) does not occur on grasses however, and is found in close proximity to the 'orange' sugar sand on small plants.
