Comments & ID Thoughts

It seems to be a male Colonus Sylvanus(Sylvana Jumping Spider). I noted was that this specimen was very skittish. I found the spider at roughly five thirty PM on a tall and thin bush. Front legs to back it was roughly half an inch long. I also have other pictures and a video witch may better display this specimen.
PS-Does any one know any good reference for studying specific Salticidae?
