Jumping Spider

Dear Matt,
This is a Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, but we have yet to identify the genus or species.  When we have a spare moment, we will browse through BugGuide and attempt to identify the species.

Update:  December 29, 2018
Thanks to Barbara for identifying this Pike Slender Jumping Spider, Marpissa pikei, which is pictured on BugGuide.
