Females are slightly larger than males and lay eggs under leaves and cover them with spider silk. The chelicerae of males stick out while those of females are tucked under like normal. Both share the lucid green body color and abdominal pattern. This may aid in camouflaging them.
They are most commonly found on their namesake, the magnolia tree, but they are not limited to just that plant. Oak, maple, pine and other trees are also fair hunting grounds. Magnolia Green Jumping Spiders are typically seen in the warm, humid areas of the Southeast.
