Gynandromorphic jumping spider

After speaking with various jumping spider experts, I've learned that this little spider may very well be the first documented case of a gynandromorphic chimera (half-male, half-female) jumping spider (family Salticidae) in the Americas and possibly only the third ever in the world!

This is a woodland jumping spider (Colonus sylvanus).
