Moved from Spiders.

Eyes are too far forward
more like an Anyphaenid, but we'll wait for Lynette and Mandy

Yep, I vote for anyphaenidae, too
Might even be Anyphaena californica, but a mature palp would have to be examined to be sure.

could this be
Lycosidae Arctosa???? Maybe a young one? Just a guess.
