Phidippus asotus (adult male)


Mystaceus group-I found a couple of these awesome phidippus while one a quick adventure in southern Arizona this summer. I found this beauty as a subadult and was;t sure what species he was until he molted. What a pleasant surprise!!! This was one of the cool Phidippus that was high on my wish list :-).
