Vashon BioBlitz 2013 - Long-jawed Orbweaver? - Tetragnatha

Vashon BioBlitz 2013 - Long-jawed Orbweaver? - Tetragnatha
Fern Cove, Vashon, King County, Washington, USA

Fairly certain this belongs among the Tetragnathidae. Confirmation of family would be great; any guesses as to genus would be excellent!

Photographed on a lichen-covered branch at the edge of estuary habitat.

Looks like...
Tetragnatha but identification from pictures is tough with this genus.

 
Thanks so much, Chad!
I'll make a note in our records that Tetragnatha is a good candidate. Agreed that conclusive ID beyond family seems unlikely, but (for the sake of the BioBlitz) I'll go ahead and move these images to Tetragnathidae. Perhaps some spider savant will perform an ID miracle. :)
