Found this cutie on my car after a stop near a marshy lake in July. Pretty sure it’s a jumping spider (they have the BEST faces!), but one I’m not familiar with. What species is it? Male or female?

Dear JD Moore,
This is a really good looking Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, but unfortunately, we don’t recognize the species.  Perhaps one of our readers will write in with a comment.  We are postdating your submission to go live to our site at the end of the month when our editorial staff will be away on holiday.
