Salticidae of North America
Richman, Cutler & Hill 2012

A member of the coecatus group, Habronattus pyrrithrix is found in southern California, Arizona, and Mexico. In California H. pyrrithrix seems to prefer man-made habitats and the video shown here was shot adjacent to a golf course nursery (see "Habitat Image"). Some males exhibit iridescent scales on and around the clypeus while other males (even in the same local population) do not.
