Phidipus otiosus

Canopy Jumper (Adult Female)

Thanks again to Don Cadle of for the opportunity to photograph one of the largest and coolest phids in North America. This beautiful jumper was high on my wish list to "someday in my lifetime maybe" photograph. This species is not native to Massachusetts but can be found as far north as New York. She is from central Florida.
