Jumping Spider

Paraphidippus aurantius Gold


A gold version of Paraphidippus aurantius. The one I posted from a week or so ago was green. Not sure if there is a male/female identification here, but both are gorgeous.


Woodland forest habitat meeting a canal. Found in direct sunlight.


Photos do not do the metallic appearance justice, that is for sure.
