Status:

This jumping spider species was accidentally introduced to North America from eastern Asia. It is the only member of its genus. (BugGuide) It was apparently first documented in the U.S. on the Massachusetts coast north of Boston. Notes from Steve Scholnick about our first record: "The species appears to favor rocky coasts and, although I wouldn't describe Scotland Beach as being rocky, there are rock seawalls around including at the base of the dock where I found this individual."

There are 2 records in the project database.
