Salticus

There are 3 very similar species of which S. scenicus is the most common. Examination under a lens is necessary to tell the species apart. Best to enter a revised ID of just Salticus.

Salticus scenicus.

Definitely a male Zebra Spider. The palps are distinctive.

Salticus.

Is the first photo indoors or outdoors? If it is indoors, definitely S.scenicus, if not, there could be some doubt.

Outside

It was outside when I found it, but is was on the edge of the door. I put it on a tray to take the photo.
