Jumping Spiders 2017

Commonly called Jumping spiders, the Salticidae are also affectionately referred to as  Charlies, Herbies or Salties. They are very common around the home and their anthropomorphic nature endears them to most people. The family name is derived from the Latin "salto" which means to dance with pantomimic gestures. This is the largest spider family and includes more than 5000 species worldwide. These spiders are harmless to man although there have been complaints where this comical, engaging animal has been accused of nasty bites.  Check out the video below from YouTube of one species of jumping spider - the peacock spider, it is fantastic!! Click here.

Here's a video from National Geographic of a jumping spider catching a bee. Click here. One of my viewers, Graeme, has sent in some great photos of Australian Jumping Spiders. Click here for a page of his photos. Here's some photos sent in by viewers.

JUMPING SPIDERS -  Unclassified

Jumping spiders (Salticidae) are the personalities of the spider world. Though generally small in size (up to 12 mm body length), their large eyes, prodigious jumping ability, often brilliant colours and cocky, inquisitive activity make them very appealing. Many are daylight hunters, using their excellent vision to track, stalk and calculate distance, before suddenly leaping on their prey, propelled by their strong back legs. Males are often more strikingly coloured, patterned or adorned with leg or body hair tufts than are females. They use these adornments to impress the females during often elaborate courtship displays. Information - Australian Museum

Glen, I have attached a picture of a spider my son found this morning. It is the weirdest little white fuzzy spider that you can imagine. I have never seen anything like it. It looks like it could be the cutest pet ever. Fortunately my son is not afraid of spiders and he caught it and it is living in a glass jar. Please take a look and let me know if it is anything special. Thanks, Bob

Hello, I have posted pics of this little fellow on Facebook and while it got a lot of response, no one seemed to be able to identify it. It was on the side of my house here in Washington State. It was only about 1" long. It seemed to be a jumper by the way it moved. However, also very similar to a Wolf Spider or a Wood Jumper but the markings as you can see are very distinct. Can you identify it? see attached. Thanks in advance.

This spider is slightly larger than a dime, hairy and not near a web. I found it on the outside outlet box of my back porch. After lifting the hatch I'm pretty sure there are eggs right behind the latch...maybe protecting them? It seemed to "stand up" when I was looking (at close range) to the eggs. This is one of 5 different species I've seen around my home but I have no idea what this is. Honestly, I have no idea what any of them are! Any information would be greatly appreciated. Considering, I have an eight year old and two five year olds that love the outdoors. They are all fascinated with insects and arachnids. One of my twin girls told me her brother (the 8yo) dared her to eat a spider. She said, "Don't worry, it was only a baby one..." Please help! Thanks:) Morgan

Hello, I live in Sonoma County, California, about 70 miles north of San Francisco. I was sitting on my deck a month or so ago and found this spider. It is about a centimeter in diameter (toe to toe) and appears to be a hopper. At first I thought it was a blue-bottle housefly because of it's iridescence. I hope the picture is clear enough for a positive ID. All I had was my iPhone, so I couldn't get much of a macro shot. I have never seen such a spider. It is truly beautiful, don't you agree? Cheers, Randy

Live in Riverside CA .. where its brown widows that are the norm along with the occasional black .. though it seems their populations are nearly extinct since the browns moved in ...eliminated 6 juvenile browns this afternoon ..on the chain link in broad daylight. There is a heated debate over the ID of this spider. Bets are heavy .. Hoping you tell me what I want to hear!!! Thank you in advance for your help! Yours is the go-to site for all things spiderz!

Good day I stumbled across your webpage while trying to identify this spider that my brother encountered on one of his travels in Indonesia. He says he is not hairy and doesnt have a web on his back like the peacock spider. I thought perhaps it was some sort of mouse spider, however my knowledge of spiders is very limited. It would be greatly appreciated if you could assist us with this. Thanking you in advance. Janine

I'm not sure if you know a lot about spiders and can identify most of them but after looking at your site, I figured to send you an email cause I'm very curious what this spiders called. I found this on my wall and it seems vicious. I tried going around it to get a better view and it would move and raise it's arm. So I took lint tape and attached it to my broom and made it stuck to tape. That's how I was able to get a good pic of it. Even when it was stuck on the tape, I moved around it to get its face and it managed to escape half way and raise it's arms at me again as you can see. I'm hoping you can identify this for me and tell me what would've happened if this thing were to bite me cause I've been having goosebumps all day. Thank you for your time and sorry for the long explanation hahah hoping to get a reply back, Thanks!

Hi Glen I was looking over your website and I was wondering if you could identify a spider for me? I work in Public Health in the UK and have received a complaint regarding the spider in the above attachment. The spider was found in a box of grapes which came from the USA (I assume North America) and was about as big as my thumbnail. Is there any chance you could have a look at it and let me know what it is? It looks like a really small tarantula but as we donít normally get any exciting arachnids in this country my knowledge on them is relatively poor. Many thanks for your help Gavin

Glen, Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures - it wouldn't stay still. I found this spider climbing up my bathroom wall today in Seattle, WA, with no evidence of a web. Since I don't recognize it as one of our house spiders, I think it came in from outside, so I caught it in a glass and put it back out. (I like spiders, but I'm definitely no expert at identifying them.) This is a little one, maybe 3/8." It's very pretty with the brown and yellow coloration, but I have not been able to find pictures of anything like it. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks. The last picture is of a long-bodied cellar spider with her egg sac, who has made a web directly above my bed and tends to stay pretty still. Danna

Thanks! So fun to know a little more about the spider. With your information, I looked around the internet a bit, and I think it may be a Hentzia Mitrata. http://www.cirrusimage.com/spider_jumping_h_mitrata.htm

Can you offer any assistance in identifying this spider? Honestly, I'm assuming it is a spider, as I am not positive that the two front extremities are actually legs. Everything else appears very much to suggest spider. It was photographed on an outdoor bench in full daylight in Mobile, Alabama, USA. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

I was walking in a desert in SoCal when I came to a rest. Upon my rest arose a visitor out of a tiny, yet distinct hole in the ground. The Spider came towards me, pausing for a moment, only to raise its body and observe me with its beady eyes(two of which were unusually large and close together in the center of the front of the face). The spider continued toward me without out a single fear or apprehension. It was small in size with thick, hairy legs. The color was a dark reddish brown with grey patches on the legs and fangs. It had a large white spot, similar to the jumping spider but located on a different area of the back. Another distinctive characteristic was the yellow, almost pointed butt of the creature, and even more intriguing was the red band around the eyes. Although the photos are not the best quality, I am hopeful that there is enough detail among the photos of the spider, the eyes, and the whole it crawled out of, for someone to help me identify it. Greatly interested and appreciated. -Tiana

Glen, I was able to take several pictures with my camera instead of my cellphone, so they are better quality. One is of the underside, one from above at an angle, one I think head-on, and the others showing coloring and markings. I hope it works this time! :) Thanks for your help. Angie

I would like to find out what kind of spider this is and I also have an unusual story. This jumping spider was found on the cloths line in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada. My wife's old boss was having some pain in his ear and finally went to the doctor. They found what they called a daddy long leg spider had taken up residence in his ear canal and had been there for some time. I could get the details if you would like them. It sounds very unusual, but it may be more common that I think. Thanks and great site John

Hello, I hope this is the right place...We have two young children and we are trying to figure out what kind of jumping spider rescued us from this bothersome fly. We thought it was a jumping spider, because after dropping his breakfast he pounced on it very skillfully when i offered it back. We then were able to verify that much, but are very interested in knowing what kind. If this is the right place for this kind of question and you could give us any helpful information, we would be highly appreciative! If this is not the appropriate location for this question, then please accept our apology. Thank you very much for your time and wonderful web site! With Peace, -Tilley family
