Sitticus pubescens

    Family : Salticidae
    Genus : Sitticus
    A new find for me, a beautiful little jumping spider.
    Confirmed by Peter Harvey of the British Arachnological Society
    and the Spider Recording Scheme, as an adult male Sitticus pubescens.

    I found this second, male S. pubescens on a door, he sat in the same place for
    nearly a week!
