Evarcha hoyi

Hoy's Jumper (MA Native)

One of the more common jumpers here in MA. I find them along the edge of the forest on low veggitation in spring summer and fall. The males are particularly colorful and fun to photograph. They are much smaller than the Phidippus jumpers. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
