Banded Phintella

Phintella vittata


A tiny 4-mm spider. This is the only shot of it I could get before I "jumped" away. Extremely beautiful black and orange body with golden-silver bands.

Thank you, Atul! Patty, I really think Atul nailed it with the name. Again, I'm no expert, but a little google-ing with the suggested name, does pull up a lot many more matches. So, thank you, again Patty and Atul. This is what is wonderful about Project Noah for me... many people, from many places, all working towards one goal, identifying, sharing information about, and marveling on the works of nature!

Thank you, Patty, for the ID; though I know narrowing down on the exact name is impossible, what with the different colors and patterns these critters come with.

Nice spotting nivedc. It is a jumping spider and I think it is a cosmophasis sp. due to its colors. Greetings =)
