Phidippus regius (male)

"Regal Jumper"

I was down in Florida last week and finally found some Phidippus regius. I was particularly excited to photograph this small male because of the blue chelicera!!! The green chelicera is much more common. I also found a couple of adult females (one with purple chelicera :-)) I'll post some images of her soon. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
