    If it has irredescent chelicerae it is of the Phidippus group. If it does not, it possibly may indeed be a Marpissa bina. I'm not familiar with this color-form of the M. bina, tho.

    To me it looks like Phidippus audax or Phidippus regius.

    Do you by chance have more photos of this cool jumper?

    This picture made me smile, because it looks like it has one really beefy leg.
