Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this is a spider. But it could be an ant. Found in the reno,Nev area near open space and foothills.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Jumping Spider in the genus Phidippus. I think P. nikites but I’m not sure how to rule out P. apacheanus which is also very similar.
