Jumping Spider - Phidippus mystaceus

Ozark Region / Bennett Spring State Park, Missouri, USA

Size: less than 1"
Frisky fella joined us in our campground. Didn't wanna sit still, but got a few pix. Please forgive the table cloth background, it was the only way we could keep him from dodging down between the slats of the wooden picnic table. We think it's the Jumping Spider Phidippus mystaceus, but would like your opinion.

Absolutely !!! Thanks all - Chad, Ben and Robert for your help with this guy. He's probably just waiting to entertain the next campers who come along.
