Comments & ID Thoughts

Platycryptus undatus or something related? I'm in northern Nevada, but don't see my state listed for this spider's range.

It's not the same as other jumping spiders I've seen in my yard before. It was investigating a plant I had brought outdoors for the summer, and was only about a half-inch long. Thank you!

Tentatively Platycryptus californicus.

The Platycryptus spiders look similar, Itsy Bitsy’s ID took location into account. Sometimes I try using Bing or Yahoo to see different results than Google and it works out well.
