Collection: Bold Jumping Spider

"Phidippus audax is a common jumping spider of North America. It is commonly referred to as the bold jumping spider or bold jumper.[1] The spider belongs to the genus Phidippus, a group of jumping spiders easily identified both by their relatively large size and their iridescent chelicerae."

"Phidippus audax varies widely in size and coloration.[2] Adult males range from 4–15 millimeters in body length, with an average of 8 mm. Adult females range from 4–18 millimeters in body length, with an average of 11 mm.[2] They are typically black with a pattern of spots and stripes on their abdomen and legs. Often these spots are orange-tinted in juveniles, turning white as the spider matures. However, in some parts of Florida it is common for adults to have yellow, orange, or red spots.[2] The chelicerae (mouthparts) are a bright, metallic green or blue."
