Jumping Spider - Habronattus mataxus - male

Jumping Spider - Habronattus mataxus - Male
South Padre Island, Cameron County, Texas, USA
November 25, 2011
One of the most impressive characteristics of this jumper are the over-sized leg I fringes. Griswold's range map shows this is strictly a coastal species and if development on SPI is any indication this species is loosing habitat rapidly. Identification confirmed by Wayne Maddison.
