I know this is a terrible image (he wouldn't stop moving), but is there enough here to identify this guy as Bassaniana? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Moved from Crab Spiders.

Yes, we would agree
with Bassaniana. That far south in Indiana you should have versicolor. But you may still be in the area where utahensis and versicolor hybridize - one of the spider folk may know.
