Hello, It is good to meet you! I love nature and animals and particularly insects and spiders. Some of my favorite spiders are, of course, jumping spiders! I am making my own project that includes every animal in New Brunswick, including arthropods, so as you can imagine, there are a LOT of spiders I have to go through. I take my own pictures and I have over a hundred spiders that I photographed all in New Brunswick! Not many of them are identified yet, though. The most common jumping spider that I have found, especially around my own yard (which is out in the country) is this species in the photograph. I have many more pictures of this species, and I was wondering if you could help me find out what species it is? Especially since it is the most common one I see. Thank you!
AS: that is a Spotted jumping spider (a very creative naturalist named it) couldn’t find the scientific name for it, but they are indeed very common and adorable! sounds like a neat project!
