Marpissa Pikei


This jumper is much longer and narrower than any other jumpers I have foud in MA. They like to lay parrallel to twigs and grasses with there front limbs outstretched. I found this one on the coast of MA. They were very abundant in the few locations that I found them. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
