Saw this little fella on our deck the other day. Any idea what it is?
Johnson Jumping Spider?
It’s definitely a jumping spider. INaturalist identified it as possibly a greyish jumping spider. You can identify flora and fauna with your phone anywhere with the iNaturalist app.
Yes a jumping spider, very common here on the coast (Phidippus johnsoni (Johnson Jumping Spider) - Spider Identification & Pictures). Likely Phidippus johnsoni
(Johnson Jumping Spider). They are very curious spiders, turning their heads to watch what I am doing in the greenhouse! They are great at eating pests.
Thanks everyone. Yes he definitely looked like the Johnson Jumping spider. I’m glad he is out there doing his work.
