    Im really liking this species, so far. the large size and bold patterning are very attractive! Unlike phidippus, of which mimic velvet ants, these appear to be mimicking some sort of true bug or perhaps something long extinct before humans set foot in america

    Paraphidippus basalis Mature Male

    One big jumper! This male is 1-2 mm shy of 2" legspan! This species of paraphidippus is found around rosette-forming plants, like Agave, Yucca, Sotol etc. A wise defense strategy, as my poor punctured hand now displays :\
