Sassacus vitis in Utah, Bear River Bird Refuge spiders, spiders in Utah
From what I understand this spider is common
in grapevines but I found this female at Bear River
Bird Refuge on some reeds.  All jumping spiders
are very beneficial and have excellent vision.
They are not poisonous!  Carol Davis 7-30-2006

Grape vine spider
This little male is probably this species, although the
experts couldn't quite agree.  It was so tiny.
