Beat from a cottonwood tree along a creek. The overall markings and epigynum seem to match this species pretty well.

From Rod Crawford -
who was kind enough to look at these images:

"the epigynum is a good match but the receptacles look more like spectabilis than like my one female of californicus. However, the coloration isn't a good match for spectabilis. I'd leave it in californicus for now".

Philodromus californicus
Nice one Ken! I can't verify ID, but maybe you can ask John Sloan or Kevin P. to take a look if you'd like someone to second your ID.

 
Thanks Lynette -
maybe I'll ask John, as this species makes it up to Canada and he may have encountered it.

 
John Sloan -
John Sloan kindly looked at these images and thinks the epigynum matches quite well to this species, although this is not a genus he works with often and of course it's always best to have the specimen in hand...

images of dissected epigynum. Seems to match P. californicus in my view. Moving to newly created species page - comments or corrections welcome.
