Hi, this is a Jumping Spider (Salticidae), looks like one in the genus Habronattus. Here is one similar (Habronattus signatus): https://bugguide.net/node/view/890434/bgimage


Thanks, it’s not one I’m familiar with yet. It might be the same species as the one I linked to but I’d need to do some research to be sure it’s not the only white one in range. I filed your Western Spotted Orb-weavers.
