I took this photo a couple of weeks ago in San Diego. I think it’s some kind of Phidippus jumping spider, but I was wondering if it’s possible to tell from the photo what species it is. Its size was about 3/4 in. Many thanks!
You did a great job of identifying your Jumping Spider to the genus level. We are not certain, but we believe your spider resembles Phidippus adumbratus based on these photos from BugGuide which only reports the species from California.
