Just wanted to share this picture of what I believe is a Zebra Jumping Spider, after doing some searching on the internet.
We’ve been finding a bunch in our house! They are very pretty.
We agree with your identification of the Zebra Jumping Spider, Salticus scenicus. According to BugGuide it: “Seems to be an imported European species that is now widespread in North America.” Jumping Spiders are hunters that do not build webs. They have excellent eyesight.
