Eris militaris
male

 
I'm not sure
The other day I was stuck between the genus eris, evarcha, pelegrina, and metaphidippus. The reason I didn't choose eris militaris is because there seemed to be less white on the spiders in that species than spiders in pelegrina. http://bugguide.net/node/view/2003 says "I believe most (or all) male Pelegrina also have white scales beneath the ALE." "I don't think any Eris have white scales under the ALE." both quoted from Jay Barnes. I'm leaning towards Pelegrina proterva myself but I'm not completely sure as a lot of spiders in the listed genuses above look alike.
