What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Greetings, and thank you for your WONDERUL site! We live on the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida, so we have zillions of lovely critters that share our world, and we use your site for reference often. My 3 and 6 year olds also love perusing the great photos. Finally I may have a photo that you could use. I noticed that you don’t have many pics of the Green Jumping Spider–hard to photograph because they are so small. I took this the other day on our playset—they are quite unafraid of us and blend in with the green plastic slide…. Thanks again,

Hi Robin,
Thanks for you kind letter and your photo of a Green Jumping Spider. We believe it is Lyssomanes viridis, the Magnolia Green Jumper as pictured on BugGuide.
