Anderson River Park, Shasta County, California, USA

Size: 6 mm
I found this beautiful adult male gnaphosid under some loose bark on the ground, just a meter or so from the bank of the Sacramento River. It appears to be a lightly colored variant of S. montanus, as mentioned for some Western specimens in the Platnick and Shadab revision? At least I think the palp matches that species better than other Sergiolus?

Looks right to me
Palp matches the diagrams in Paquin and Duperre, 2003 pretty closely.
