Jumping spider - Sitticus Terebratus

#1 Post by hkv » Sun Jun 11, 2017 7:29 pm

I found this little jumping spider on the porch when barbecuing. As a genuine microscopist, I immediately put her (him?) in a sample jar for further study. Here are the resulting images of what I believe is "Sitticus Terebratus".

Full body (approx. 4 mm), 2.5X PlanAPO, External light source
