Paraphidippus aurantius

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.  Paraphidippus aurantius occurs from the USA to Panama, and on the Greater Antilles.

JUMPING SPIDERS

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
