I am sure we have some kind of jumper but man was he a slow mover! Maybe because it was a little chilly outside .....

I’m considering the genus Colonus…C.sylvanus, perhaps?

Helper-Harvestman

Yes, I agree! Colonus for sure. Maybe while you’re at it you can check out these additional sightings of Wendave70’s. I’ve had no luck getting a conclusive identity on them, but I’m pretty sure they’re either C. sylvanus or C. puerperus:

Same dilemma here..It seems to me that both species have different abdominal markings. I have looked through all the sighitings of C. puerperus/sylvanus in Virginia on Inaturalist, but that didn’t solve my dilemma.
About the two additional sightings, all I can say is that the second specimen looks a lot like this one:

If I am to venture a guess, I say C. puerperus in this case 🙂

Helper-Harvestman

I accept that.
