Phidippus nikites? - Phidippus nikites - Male
Mickey Hot Springs, Harney County, Oregon, USA

A friend informs me that this is likely Phidippus nikites (rather than apacheanus) based on a 2004 revision of the genus (by G.B. Edwards), but I don't see that species listed here.

Moved from Phidippus. Nice! A new species added to the Guide! I checked through Edwards 2004 and agree this is probably P. nikites. No other member of the genus looks like this in Oregon, as far as I can tell. P. apacheanus looks incredibly similar but P. nikites is the more western species. I also marked these as male while I was here, I hope you don't mind; I could see the enlarged palps nicely in the 2nd image.
