Dear What’sThatBug
What’s this bug?
I found it crawling on me. Looks like some sort of jumping spider. It was definitely not afraid to lunge at my camera as I snapped some pictures.
As you can see from the photos, the front legs were much longer than the other legs… And they were striped (black and white). The abdomen was a shiny green color. God bless!

Jumping Spider

Hi Hector,
YOu are correct that this is a Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, but we don’t recognize the species.  Judging from the enlarged pedipalps, this is a male.
