Isn't P. whitmanii primarily an Eastern species while P. johnsoni is central to western US. Just throwing that out there (by no means a Salticid expert :)

Thanks Tiz! I did some searching and I believe it is Arizona Monkshood (Aconitum infectum Greene).

Creepy and Cool at the same time! What a jaw he has/had on him. Do you think it may have been grabbed by an eagle or osprey and dropped there?

Cool find! Your bark scorpions look much darker than our Centruroides sculpturatus here in AZ. Actually, I wasn't aware that there were more Centruroides out there. Good luck on your masters and thanks for not squashing this mamma :)

Thanks Jack! good call. I'm definitely going with the female Phidippus johnsoni as its coloration is a perfect match and the distribution of the western US fits. The other species you mentioned is East Coast and I spotted this in Cali. Thanks again!
