Salticidae? - Phidippus octopunctatus Salticidae? - Phidippus octopunctatus

From Rod Crawford
Yes, it would have to be the species officially known as octopunctatus; compare this one recently found by Shannon Bowley in the Sun Lakes area.

I refer to this species as Phidippus sp. #1. The epigynum is radically unlike that of true octopunctatus, though the males are very close.


Moved from Jumping Spiders.

Moved
Moved from ID Request. I think there's a good chance we've got this right, but I've moved the images here so the jumper experts can take a look.

Yes
Jumping spider, family Salticidae. Perhaps a male Phidippus octupunctatus?

Nice shots.

 
Thanks for the ID
It really looks like the specimen in the image you sent in your reply, down to the "anklets." Thank you.
