Comments & ID Thoughts

Not a clue. He seemed to jump. He landed on my art easel in my studio on the second floor of my home. Am guessing he fell out of an air vent in the ceiling above. He appeared to be about ¾" in length. Very distinctive facial features.

Oh I am 7 and so you do not know I’m right but that is a bold jumping spider I know because I am trying to catch one bad when I go on spring brake in orlando!!!!!!

Plesiosaurus_123

its not a bold jumper but its definitely in that same genus.

The mostly white body and green/blue chelicerae make me think that it is a regal jumping spider, also called Phidippus Regius. Tennessee is also in their range 🙂

LocalEntomologist

They are very fun spiders! You can sex spiders by looking at their palps, on adult males they will look swollen, while on females or young spiders they will look more even.

LocalEntomologist

The males are more likely to have the shiny chelicerae so he probably is 🙂

It can’t be a regal because the females, the white ones, have pink chelicerae, where this one has green ones

LocalEntomologist

I see what you mean here, although it appears that there is a good bit of colour variation within the species. Do you know what it could be?

Plesiosaurus_123

I’m not sure, perhaps a canopy jumper?
