I caught this jumping spider in Colorado the other day. The color pattern looks similar to a Bold Jumper. Anyone know if it's just a regular small jumping spider or possibly and a juvenile Bold Jumper?
Sorry for low quality.

Phidippus for sure, quite possibly Phidippus audax. I don't think there is anything similar-looking in Colorado, but I am not sure I can ID with 100% certainty from this image alone.

Thank you for the quick response and ID. I would we thrilled if it's an Audax. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow.

Not a clue myself but if it's a male Phidippus Audax let him go to prolong his species.

Now looking at it i'm not that confident with saying its a male... It might be a juvie, but agreeing with @basin79 better safe than sorry if its a male.
