Hi all,

I photographed these jumping spiders in my garden today. The first two photos are of the same individual, whilst the last photo is of two additional spiders, one of which has been caught by the other.

Would anybody be able to help ID these?

Cheers in advance,

Ryan

Well-known member
The second one (and so also the first) is a Salticus species, presumably S scenicus. I'm not sure about either of the ones in nthe third photo. The largae one may be another S. scenicus but the smaller one has distinctly banded legs and I wonder if that could be Calositticus pubescens or Pseudeuophrys lanigera but they're just suggestions.
