Dimorphic Jumper

Maevia inclemens

When I found this pretty female on the side of my house it was early in my jumping spider obsession and I was convinced I had discovered a new species because I couldn't find anything that looked like her on line. I did eventually figure out what she was- a very common jumper. I often have this species in my car. There seems to be one that lives in the dashboard. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
