What a beauty!!
I think it’s a Phidippus Whitmani, I’ve seen a photo of it a few hours ago and was amazed at that double red colors.
Thats some good luck you got there!
Edit: I’ve done some more reading, and it appears the males are the ones that have that bright red colors, so you probably have a male there!
