Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Any guesses on what species this is?
I freaked out when I I tried to get my phone real close and it jumped on me. About half an inch long.

Hi! This is likely Platycryptus undatus, the Tan Jumping Spider. Jumping spiders have excellent vision and a great deal of curiosity, often jumping onto unfamiliar objects to investigate them. 🙂


You are very welcome! 🙂


So she is! I hadn’t noticed that difference, but looking at the guide pages over at BugGuide.net, I see what you’re talking about.

Only the moderator can make an identification official and file the photos. They’ll get to it eventually.

Welcome to SpiderID! 🙂
