Red and silver jumping spider, found hopping around in parking lot.
Looks like a Phidippus johnsoni, a bit dusty and maybe a little on the older side!
Yeah it was my first guess, except it’s only about 5 mm (half a centimeter), and what looks like dust is not comming off. I’ve had him for about a week now,and I’ve sprayed some water in his pill bottle.
Very mysterious little fella! I will try to gently brush him with a tiny paintbrush dipped in some water, and if it manages to come off then I will come back to tell you :>
Thank you for your input!
Sometimes they rub off their color on the exoskeleton, the color may come back again if it sheds, but it’s likely fully grown already!
OHHHH That makes a lot of sense! Thank you very much!!! :O
