The name 'ardens' is a reference to these spiders resembling a burning cinder with ash or soot. They are similar to johnsoni but unrelated and are closer to apacheanus, females often have striking high-contrast patterning.
The 'Burning Jumper'
A beautiful species related to nikites and apacheanus- some females have an amazing and unique 'firebird' marking on their abdomen as adults.
Can be confused with johnsoni though abdominal markings differ.
