What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Jumping Spider from Los Angeles
June 26, 2011
Today while working in Elyria Canyon Park, we found this little Jumper in the plant nursery.  We cannot identify it on BugGuide.  It looks most like a member of the genera
Marpissa or Thiodina.

Jumping Spider:  Metacyrba taeniola similis

Update:  December 29, 2018
AA big thanks to Barbara for her comment indicating this is likely Metacyrba taeniola similis which we located on BugGuide.

    We get those here in England. Usually when I’ve had windows open they come in. I no longer have windows open. September is mating and/or hatching season.

    This is in the genus Metacyrba. Given the location, it is likely Metacyrba taeniola similis.
