Jumping Spider - Admestina wheeleri - male

Jumping Spider - Admestina wheeleri - Male
Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
July 24, 2012
Size: 3 mm
The flattened shape and uncharacteristic movement (it almost seems to slither along with much bobbing of the abdomen) of this jumper had me wondering (at first) if it really was a salticid. Piel's (1991) paper describes the 3 species of Admestina with this being the most northerly.
