A cold spider - Philodromus

A cold spider - Philodromus
Germantown, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA
December 20, 2009
Size: 3 mm
It was crawling--very slowly--on the snow around noon in my backyard. Temperature above the snow was varying from -3.3 to -5.1 C.

Moved from ID Request.

The legs and eyes
make us think of a Running Crab Spider in the genus Philodromus. Let's see what some of the other folk say.

Philodromidae family...
...would be my guess. Maybe Philodromus genus.
