Great !
to get an ID. Thanks. These guys are quite common here.

 
It's the common one in my yard
here in New Mexico too (saw some Saturday). Up above the house in the Canyons we have S. albolineata too, and down in the river valley (Rio Grande) S. shoshone, and S. nitens are more common. I think you have the same four in your area. At least 400 miles apart, and yet very similar.

 
Yes,
these are the same four species here. Nitens is found all winter on the sides of some of the buildings here in town.
