This thing will not stay still so very difficult to take a photo, but I'll post a couple that I got.


This first pic you can see it has those unique spots on the abdomen, it is grey/white?

I got the under side.

You should see the males of this species, it's my profile picture on Arachnoboards. The males have two variations, each beautiful in their own way.

You are right! Love the orange on the young ones. I use to have a Phidippus audax "bryantae" variation from Florida. It was one of the most beautiful spider I've owned. It had a nice orange, black, and white color as an adult.
