Pholcidae? - Holocnemus pluchei

Pholcidae? - Holocnemus pluchei
Fullerton Arboretum, Orange County, California, USA
June 28, 2009
Size: < phalangioides
Perhaps a Daddy Longlegs Spider? There were quite a few of these around in small webs. They were smaller and much more heavily patterned than phalangioides, which were also present. Could, I suppose, be a different sex or variant of phalangioides.
