Belongs within: Salticidae.

Salticus is a primarily Palaearctic genus of jumping spiders, commonly marked with a black and white pattern formed by white hairs on a black cuticle. Members include the the zebra spider S. scenicus which is widespread in Europe and has also been introduced to North America. This species has a pattern of white transverse stripes on the opisthosoma. Another Palaearctic species, S. cingulatus, is more extensively covered by white hairs resulting in overall white appearance with black spots.
