Thanks all
I'm surprised by this ID even though the eyes and general shape look right.
I never suspected that anything in Wolf Spiders would be this colorful (and pretty). Is it taking
on the color of the sand which has a lot of colors that are out of view in the photo?

Moved from ID Request.

Might this be another
Lycosid spiderling?

I agree
and location suggests Arctosa sp..
