Comments & ID Thoughts

My initial guess is probably a regal jumping spider (phiddipus regius?) Decently sized and found on the side of my barn.

Regal jumpers are usually found in southeastern US so bold jumper is more likely

I agree with Adele, this one is probably Phidippus audax (bold jumper). We don’t have any valid records for P. regius in Ohio. Check out the list on my website spidersinohio.net (under about spiders, checklist).
