Came across this gorgeous little creature last week, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. My best guess is that he’s a magnolia green jumper, but the photos I’ve found online didn’t seem conclusive. Your thoughts?

Dear Sterling,
We agree that this is a Magnolia Green Jumper,
Lyssomanes viridis.  Compare your image to this photo on BugGuide.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks very much! I hadn’t come across that BugGuide photo in my own searches, but that’s definitely him. I appreciate the help!
