Size: about 1/4 inch
Sorry about the poor image. My camera does not do well on subjects this small.

crab spider
beyond that I start getting confused.
Genus Misumena
Genus Misumenoides
Genus Misumenops

Of the three Misumenops is the only one I can usually ID because it has a hairy back. I can't tell if this one is hairy or not.

 
Thank you
The only hair I can see on it is on the legs. I did look in the guide at those Genus' but didn't see the exact one. You've been a great help.
