Inkie14 Posted December 2, 2014 Share Posted December 2, 2014 I recently had 5 Phidippus audax molt into adulthood, all were male. I noticed that a few were large (about .21g-.16g), while a few were very small, smaller than any male Bold Jumper I've ever owned! (about .08g) Could this be due to genetics? They are kept in the same exact environment, and all fed a very similar diet of roaches and flies. I know that Phidippus regius and Phidippus audax males look very similar- is it possible that the smaller males are Phidippus regius? How can one distinguish between the two? I can include photos if needed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
