Nice! How did you figure these out?
Can you ID any of the other Zygiella images in the guide? Certainly Tom Adams' are very similar. Great addition to the guide!

 
From Rod Crawford:
"This is Zygiella atrica and if I had the specimen it would be
a new record for Pierce County!"
I don't know if I can ID any of the others, but I can send the links to Rod.

It turns out that the male is x-notata and the female may be atrica. I've collected a female and it is just waiting to meet with Rod. Here is what Rod had to say about this male.
"..it is not atrica, but x-notata. Male atrica are very distinctive with an extremely long palp tibia."

Moved
Moved from Enoplognatha.

Interesting - We thought the male
Enoplognatha has those huge jaws (see ). Any chance that these could be Zygiella (or Parazyg or Metazyg - we don't know them very well)??

 
You're right
I had ovata on the brain when I posted these!
