Neal hi,
you might try asking this on alt.pets.arachnids
i dont know of an arachnid site thats easy to use like you are asking
for but there are a decient number of arachnid sites around if you have
the time to go through pics and what not. off hand what your describeing
sounds like a daring jumping spider {Phidippus audax} but its such a
vague discription so it could be just about anything plus we dont know
where you are liveing, check out jumping spiders of north america
