White Spider Sonoran Desert - Diguetia - female

White Spider Sonoran Desert - Diguetia - Female
Ajo / Arizona, Pima County County, Arizona, USA
October 17, 2010
Size: leg spread 1 1/4 inches
I found this spider during a bio-survey in Ajo, AZ. It had an interesting, sock-like web structure for its' retreat, with various leaf debris woven in. (see pic). The spider itself was white in coloration, which I found unusual. (see pic). The spider's legspan was approx. 1.25", if not a little more. Anybody that can provide species-level ID, it would be greatly appreciated.
