OK, a small spider with crab-like half claws?
I live in Houston and found this little guy (half-centimeter, maybe) on the table of my 4th story deck. After an hour of research on the web, including your site — still no luck. Seen it before? Thanks,
While we cannot locate an exact species identification, all indications are that this is an Antlike Jumping Spider in the genus Peckhamia. It looks very similar to, but not exactly like, Peckhamia picata which is pictured on BugGuide.
I just found this page ( http://tolweb.org/accessory /Salticids_in_Disguise?acc_id =63 ), where I definitely now see the close similarities. Very, very interesting. And thank you again,
