Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this little friend just outside my door in rural Nova Scotia! My guess was possibly a pregnant female jumping spider, but does anyone have any ideas of which type it may be? I'm certainly no expert. Certainly a cutie, either way! I wasn't able to get an angle of the face so hopefully this photo does it justice.

This is a female Phidippus purpuratus, one of our larger and most striking Jumping Spiders.
PS For some reason, this is showing up as if the sighting is in NB, not NS.
