Zebra Jumping Spider with Parasite
This tiny male Zebra Jumping spider that I found in Taylorsville, Utah has a tiny red parasite.
I don't know if it's doing damage or just hitchhiking. © Carol Davis 5-20-2016
As you can see, the little varmint seems to be moving around on the spider. A sad note - yesterday (May 29)
I found the little spider where I left him and he had died. I think the mite did him in. © Carol Davis 5-20-2016
