Male Green Lynx spider in Ventura, CA? - Peucetia viridans

Male Green Lynx spider in Ventura, CA? - Peucetia viridans
Ventura, Ventura County, California, USA
August 21, 2009
Size: The size of a quarter
This is a very fast-moving spider, equally fast going sideways as forward. Looks like a male, with the club-like pedipalps. Never saw one of these around here. Was running on the walkway between the side of our house and our garage — crevices, wood, concrete, not much greenery within 8 feet. But that color makes me think he was traveling toward greener surrounds, not staying.

Green lynx looks right.
I'm no expert, but I've shot a lot of these a couple counties to the south. It's nice seeing them on a neutral background; I don't believe I've ever seen them run.
