I found this interesting looking Jumping Spider on the back windshield of my truck. The spider had dropped down out of a Live Oak tree.
It is believed that this Jumping Spider is a Phidippus texanus.
The coloration on this individual is striking. The spider is light tan over all, with a vivid orange and black pattern on the dorsal side of its abdomen. He has big, bronze colored eyes, and metallic green chelicerae. All together these unique features make him a very attractive looking spider!
