Excellent addition to the guide.
This is the first adult female of this species here on the guide. These are excellent images, especially since they were taken in the wild.

Awesome! I'm glad that I was able to contribute something unique to Bugguide. :)

Lovely
Jumper. Threw me initially. But at this size it had to be a Phid with those green fang sheaths up front. And in Oregon there are not that many species. I am betting this is Phidippus californicus in one of its various forms. Those black and white bars up behind the eyes are telling. This is one that is not in color in the big Phid revision book. G. B. Edwards needs to borrow your fine shot.
