Evarcha proszynskii Marusik & Logunov, 1998 - Jumping Spider


NA Range Map
Salticidae of North America
Richman, Cutler & Hill 2012

The work of Kaston, Edwards, and Maddison all suggested that Evarcha falcata likely consisted of more than one species. In 1997 three species were described, two of which occur in North America. Although there is still some debate about our eastern Evarcha hoyi (see species account), the present species Evarcha proszynskii, with its largely western distribution in North America, occurs worldwide across a broad area from Siberia to America.
