Spider Eastern Nebraska - Dysdera crocata

Spider Eastern Nebraska - Dysdera crocata
Cass County, Nebraska, USA
May 1, 2006
Outside house, on cement patio. Brilliant color, not much as far as markings.

Dysdera crocata?
See guide page here.

I'd agree.
My initial thought was a specimen of one of the running spiders in the genus Trachelas, but the chelicerae (jaws) on this specimen fit much better with Dysdera!

Thanks to both of you!
I was on that genus going through the guide myself but wasn't 100% sure. I really appreciate it.
