Wall Crab Spider T. Actophilus?? or Running Crab? - Philodromus - female

Wall Crab Spider T. Actophilus?? or Running Crab? - Philodromus - Female
Alamogordo, Otero County, New Mexico, USA
August 20, 2017
I could not find any pictures of T. Actophilus but according to my field guide we have them here. This pretty lady has been hanging out on my husband's desk. She just sits and watches him all day it seems. I would be shocked if this is a running crab spider because most of those I have seen always seem to startle easily and don't tend to hang around the same place.

Although the more I look at the eyes the more I question whether this is a crab spider after all.
