Well, that reopens the possibility of what I saw downtown having been an extremely large jumper. I was astonished at its size but didn't grab a coke bottle quickly enough to catch it before it vanished in a puff of smoke.
Well, our jumpers may not be the very largest in the world but we do have some doozies. I've seen P. audax monstrosities that were about 1" DLS. That's not as large as the spider shown above but still pretty big... for a jumper. I think there is a Phiddipus spp out west that gets even bigger.
That was a great video Erik. Thanks for sharing it.
