    Thank you, I just had to assume the it was a Phidippus audax because I live in Maine and that’s apparently the only large native jumper here.

    Wait, johnsoni is native to the west not the east...could it have possibly stowed away on some luggage or stuff like that from the west? Looks definitely like johnsoni but they’re not from the east...

    Looks to be Phidippus purpuratus or borealis.

    Looks like Phidippus borealis to me but not 100% sure.
