Comments & ID Thoughts

My room is on the second story of a pretty tall house. This little guy (about the size of a dime) is trapped in between the glass of my window and the mesh. Every time I see them, they’re snacking on a gnat. I watch them and it’s like they’re using the mesh as a web. Gnats fly up and get caught in it and Peter (spider’s name) goes over and eats them.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Pantropical Jumper, Plexippus paykulli. Peter might be a girl, mature males are rather different looking.

You’re welcome. Maybe it will surprise you and molt. 😀
