Happy to help. It's amazing what you can figure out with a little patience and perseverance. I've learned so much from browsing bugguide.net, field guides, university Web sites, etc. Looking through the Project Noah pictures has been an education all by itself, and interacting with amateurs and experts is a real treat. I hope you enjoy being a part of Project Noah.

The bold jumping spider, or regal jumping spider, is supposed to be a common jumping spider found in Florida. In addition to the bugguide reference I suggested above, have a look at this reference from the University of Florida:

Hope this helps.
