The genus Phidippus contains some of the largest, most colorful species and is one of the most diverse genera in the family of jumping spiders. They are a conspicuous component of the arachnofauna in North America, and are frequently found in homes and gardens.
Various species of Phidippus have been found to be important as predators in agroecosystems, implicated in human envenomations, studied for their complex predatory and courtship behaviors, and had their extraordinary visual system used as a model for jumping spider vision.
This volume of the Occasional Papers consists of viii + 156 pages, including a Table of Contents, full Index, 350 figures and 24 maps. It also has a 4-page full color cover containing 61 photographs of species of Phidippus.
