What kind of spider is this?

Jumping Spider

Dear Texas Finest,
We browsed quickly through the Jumping Spiders in the family Salticidae that are represented on BugGuide, and we could not find the species identity of this Jumping Spider.

Update:  December 6, 2012
We recently received a comment that this resembles a male
Hentzia grenada which is pictured on BugGuide.  According to BugGuide, Hentzia grenada is found in “peninsular Florida” and no mention is made of Texas.

    Hi guys,
    this looks a lot like a species that is quite rare in Australia and poorly described, closely related to the Old World order of Mopsus. Here is a link to Mopsolodes australensis

      Thanks so much Trevor. With global travel of humans increasing year by year, we expect the introduction of nonnative species will also be increasing.

    Looks like a male Hentzia Grenada to me.
