I didn't check ...
to see if there were any I might confuse it with but this one looks close enough if you want to double-check my guess:
Grammonota inornata

 
Yes!
I wanted it to be Grammonota! John's epigynum picture matches exactly what I was seeing (he takes better pictures). This was also a 1st state record!

 
Awesome! I knew I had ...
seen it somewhere before, it was so familiar that I looked through my own submissions and when I didn’t find it there it I cheated by just looking through Erigoninae submissions from PA because I was hoping maybe it was something John Rosenfeld had found. After I found it I realized I had submitted one before but it was a male. I probably had dissected a female too (which would explain why it was so familiar) and didn’t bother submitting it because I had the male for a data point and didn’t want to go through the trouble when we already have John Rosenfeld’s.
