Magnolia Green Jumper spider hanging out on a leaf near the Alabama River.
You're welcome! ForestDragon identified this same spider for me only a few weeks ago, so it was still fresh in my mind :)
Machi, very cool. Thank you much for the ID and the info on this type of spider. Today I learned something new, it was a good day!
Those other appendages are its jaws and pedipalps. Males of this species have noticeably long jaws. Here is a helpful graphic of a long-jawed orbweaver (different, but it helps explain the appendages): http://waynesword.palomar.edu/images2/Te...
