Moved from Mecaphesa.

celer-importuna-lepida complex
Probably in the celer-importuna-lepida complex, based on the distinct posterior maculae and the nearly patternless anterior abdomen.

From the relative length of the legs
we feel like we're looking at a Thomisid. Maybe it is a Misumenops, but without that dorsal shot, we feel a little lost.

 
Misumenops
I think the hairs are prominent enough to assume that genus, a dorsal shot would be nice.

 
Thanks Lynette
