Best I can tell it's a jumping spider
Yes! What a super fancy one! There are quite a few jumping spiders in North America that have bright red abdomens. I’ve never seen this one before.
Can their bites be serous? I let it go!
No worries; their bites are not considered medically significant.
Seems to be a Colorado jumping spider! Thank goodness they aren’t poisonous!
You’re right! Phidippus tyrrellii matches perfectly. Good work!
I agree. BugGuide.net doesn’t have any sightings yet for British Columbia, but it looks exactly like a Colorado Jumping Spider. https://bugguide.net/node/view/591081/data
