~1.5cm. Large enough to catch a fly.
Was lucky enough to witness it catch a small fly! But wasn't quick enough to get a photo or video. :\
great stuff as usual Liam! i really like this little guy :)
I had a really hard time finding any pictures of a female Marpissa lineata. I found one video (after my posting) that seemed to have a male and female and the female did not look like this. I think Karen's ID suggestion is correct. I think there is a good chance this is a female Thiodina sylvana. You could also submit it to Bugguide.net or similar site for ID if you really aren't sure. This is my best guess. I am by no means an expert. I haven't seen any other jumpers that look like this that live in the US.
Thanks Forest Dragon for your help. Do you think it is Thiodina sylvana or Marpissa lineata?Thanks for all your comments, Mayra.
Liam, some of the Thiodina sylvana females do have stripes:http://bugguide.net/node/view/10503/bgim...http://bugguide.net/node/view/108515/bgi...http://bugguide.net/node/view/145964/bgi...
I wonder if this could be a female Marpissa lineata. I can't find any images of females for this species at this time. Since you have two photos that appear to be males of that species, it would seem they are in your area.
Beautiful spotting and video!!
Thanks so much everyone!Karen, I don't this it is Thiodina sylvana. The abdomen is striped, not spotted. But thanks for the suggestion. :)
hey very cool :) especially the eyes!
Liam, please can you take a look at this one? http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/927...
I think is a jumper spider
