Jumping Spider (Phiippus clarus) A hairy brown, cream, and gray Salticid (jumping spider) seen on tall grasses after my husband mowed nearby. This spider belongs to the Phidippus genus. It has orange to brown markings above four pairs of eyes, cream-colored chelicerae, striped legs, and interesting dark brown and white markings on abdomen. <br />

It really liked following me around (and kept several eyes on me) as I photographed it. <br />

  1. My favorite arthropods, love them!
    I'm not an expert at all regarding identification, but I can point you to our guide. It's a collection of useful identification sites we maintain:

    1. Thanks! I think they are some of the most adorable creatures on the planet! I have some more detailed photos posted on BugGuide, and I am hoping for some response there as well. :) I'm definitely no expert on Arachnids! Posted 4 years ago
      1. Me neither, and the truth is to be told, we don't have many arachnid experts here, so it's definitely encouraged to look outside for highly specialized identifications. Posted 4 years ago
        1. Confirmed as Phidippus clarus! Yay! Posted 4 years ago

''Phidippus clarus'' is a species of jumping spider found in old fields throughout eastern North America. It often waits upside down near the top of a plant, which may be useful for detecting prey, and then quickly jumps down before the prey can escape.
