Blue-Faced Habronattus Male - Habronattus borealis - male

Blue-Faced Habronattus Male - Habronattus borealis - Male
Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma, USA
May 13, 2009
Size: ~3-4mm (?)
When I first spotted this little guy, I expected him to turn around and have a bright red face - like the Habronattus coecatus I am familiar with in Oklahoma - but his entire head was dark and his facial markings were slightly blue.

Anyone have any suggestions on what species he may be?

H. borealis initially popped into my mind as I photographed him... not sure though.

H. borealis
ID confirmed by Wayne Maddison - I've moved the pictures to H. borealis.

Looks like the coloration is a bit different than the others on the guide - the legs are a bit less "orange"
