Santa Cruz County, California, USA
April 21, 2012
found frolicking in a meadow. i uploaded pictures of this guy a while back but they weren't that useful. these show off the setae on the chelicerae and how much black covers the tarsus. leaning towards mustaciata. what are your thoughts?

Moved
Moved from Jumping Spiders. I concur with this identification based on the dark chelicerae with longer pale hairs at base and on sides, long setae from clypeus, and telotarsus I dark on distal half. These features agree with the description in Griswold (1987). Santa Cruz Co. is also included in the distribution in Griswold.
