Jumping Spider - Pelegrina proterva

Jumping Spider - Pelegrina proterva
Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA
I found this jumping spider on a leaf edge with a smaller duller one(female?) a few inches away. It was very tiny, the whole frame of this picture is probably 1/2 an inch. He had striped legs, and a reddish/rust colord back and body, with a yellow/white ring around the back, and body. I looked through the Phiddus, and stopped at cardnal but I don't see a match.

Can anyone suggest another comparible species?

This appears to be a male Pelegrina proterva. A widespread eastern jumper.
