Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marpissa pikei is a species of jumping spider that is found in the eastern USA, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Cuba.M. pikei has a very elongated form (more than twice as long as wide), which enables it to hide on hide while stretching along twigs or blades of grass. It rests by extending its first two pairs of legs in front of its body and the remaining two pairs posteriorly. Both sexes are about 8 mm long, excluding the legs. While the male has a broad black median stripe spanning the whole body and orange first legs and carapace orange, the female has a duller coloration, with the abdomen pale cream-colored, speckled with black.show more
