Cellar spider - Psilochorus

Cellar spider - Psilochorus
Agoura Hills, Los Angeles County, California, USA
February 1, 2016
Urban neighbourhood, under a valley oak. This tiny area is where I also found native salamanders and other nice species, so this seems to be a very fragmented population of native species. It ran out when I turned over a wooden plank.

I have retained this spider, but I won't keep it forever, so please let me know what is needed for genus/species ID as soon as you can.

Thanks Laura
I take it its epigynum views that generally work for these? My local ones are so strongly green in colour, I've not seen it in the genus before.

 
Yeah ...
I'm not familiar enough with this group to venture a guess at species without genitalia, I don't know if being green is specific to any particular one ... it might also be a result of something they're eating.
