sounds right to us also.

AZ Eustala
Based on range this could be anastera, rosae or conchlea.

- Rosae has carapace yellow-brown with tiny dark dots. I think I see some dark dots there? It's supposed to have three humps in a row, which I can't see here... not sure if I could see it with a dorsal view. The pattern matches the male quite well. This species was collected from montane forest and juniper woodland, which matches your 'tree' comment. I think this is our best choice for now.

- I don't think it looks like anastera.

- Conchlea is supposed to have black rings around posterior median eyes, which I can't see here. But I do think the pattern matches quite well. Spiders were collected from grass, which doesn't match your specimen.
