Pelegrina
Pelegrina, but my mind is not yet made up about the species (flavipes?).

Specimen: kmp-6276 (I now have the correct habitus images matched up to this specimen ID.)

 
How about
Pelegrina exigua (dull form)? Wayne Maddison says that in that species group P. exigua is the most likely one in my area...

No, this is neither P. exigua nor P. flaviceps. I dissected the epigynum to see the dorsal view and it is a good match to Maddison's drawing for flavipes/flavipedes.

Nothing
I was wondering about the continual flip-flop between flavipes/flavipedes, but then couldn't put it into a question so decided I would either research myself or just forget about it. :-)

The online database version of the World Spider Catalog (Platnick) has this note: "plural adjectives forbidden under ICZN", which I suspect has something to do with the problem. Let us know if you find out more.
