Moved from Jumping Spiders.

Looks like...
a male Pelegrina proterva which is common in woodlands. Note the white leading edge to the carapace.

 
That does look like a better fit.
Thanks! Is the ID sound enough for me to move it to that species?

 
Yes
I'm confident.

 
Thank you!
I’ve been working on spider photography and ID this year.
