It might be in the genus Phidippus…maybe this one …P phoenix …..but it is only a guess…


They’re ALL guesses anyhow, except for about 40 professionally identified ( with the microscope) donated photos on our site. Rick West, the World expert on tarantulas donated many copies of his photos to us. To see the click on his name then the camera icon in the link I’ll add. P. phoenix looks extremely variable. The American West has several furry species of colorful jumping spiders. I can change the ID later if we change our minds.


Here’s one of Rick West’s photos that can lead to his others.
