Subject: what kind of jumping spider is this?
Geographic location of the bug: Mt Hamilton, Santa Clara County, CA
Time: 10:33 PM EDT
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.
