Jumping Spider

Naphrys pulex


Any suggestions as to genus and species would be appreciated. This spider actually snagged some prey while I was taking its picture, but I can't tell what it's eating in the first shot.

Some of those BugGuide images look remarkably like this spider. The head shape and eye placement are almost identical, and the range fits, too. Thanks! I'll look at Naphrys pulex some more and maybe give my jumping spider a proper name.

I can't be sure, but it looks a whole lot like this one I shot:
