A Jumper

Jumping Spiders (family Salticidae) seem to be common in my shadehouse despite the exclusion of most large insects which might serve as prey for them. A number of species are on the hunt all day long. Hopefully, they are successful at times! This one seems to be ia psecies in the genus Mopsus.

Interesting photos you got there! I love jumping spiders! As a matter of fact, I spend most of my time researching and reading about them.. I'm planning to collect and observe them more. Here's my favorite reference about them: http://www.jumpingspider.net/
