Spider (Family Amaurobiidae?) - Sacramento, CA  - Castianeira thalia

Spider (Family Amaurobiidae?) - Sacramento, CA - Castianeira thalia
Sacramento, Sacramento County, California, USA
April 29, 2009
Size: 1cm body
Found this spider on my bathroom wall after a shower, I had never seen this species of spider before so I had to take a picture of it. I checked the site but couldn't find the same markings on any other spiders but I think it is a female in the family Amaurobiidae. She moved pretty fast and ran all along the wall until settling above the door.

Family Corinnidae or Gnaphosidae?
It looks quite similar to some of the Castianeira or Sergiolus to me.
