Western Lynx Spider
Hi,
This looks to be the Western Lynx Spider. They have a plethora of morphs, but looking at the abdominal pattern, I'd guess this is an Oxyopes scalaris. This looks to be a juvenile, however, so ID might not be 100%!
Cool find, regardless!
Have a good one,

 
vs Peucetia viridans
Just to continue the conversation, I've settled in on the Green Lynx spider based on this BugGuide record, which sure looks like a good match. What do you think about this comparison?
