Phidippus carolinensis (courtship)


Putnami group-Another awesome Phidippus that was high on the "need to photograph list" that I had the pleasure to meet. This is an adult male. I raised this little guy from a juvenile and wasn't completely certain what he was until the final molt but had hunch it was P carolinensis. Thanks Jen!! Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
