Long Island Jumping Spider

I was almost late to work because I found a spider in my bed…and I wanted to photograph it!  According to bugguide, this is Platycryptus undatus, fondly nicknamed the Long Island Jumping Spider.

Look at this cute little guy!

  1. I love jumping spiders. The first time I saw one when I moved to Texas I thought it looked like a baby tarantula. I agree with KDKH, it does have a cute face. =)
