This isn’t a Phidippus regius jumping spider, but that is what I am hoping to find today as my Florida adventure continues. My ignorance was cured by a quick Google search, and I realized they were (potentially) under my nose all the while. I’ve been in a scrub palm habitat questing for the next great insect subject, and apparently that is a good place to look for these spiders. I have zero jumping spider sightings so far, but here’s hoping. In the meanwhile, I have a ladybird beetle pupa nestled under a funky plant structure.
