My two cents
This seems to be a dead-ringer for Physocyclus based on these criteria: long legs, carapace with median invagination, relatively large body size, and a palp bearing a large and complex procursus.

Modisimus can be ruled out based on the lack of an eye turret and Psilochorus eliminated on the basis of size and a simpler, smaller procursus.

 
Thank you for this input Zack.

No problem
It's my pleasure Joseph

 
Thank you Zack!
Since I started posting images on BugGuide, I have been overly thankful and my constant notes of gratitude may have become a nuisance to people who moved my images, offered suggestions, or identified the specimens. Lately, I have chosen to limit my expressions of appreciation to avoid taking other people's time. Your "two cents" were valuable to me and others... BTW, with your help, this BG entry became the first one from Arizona
