Cellar Spider? - Holocnemus pluchei - female

Cellar Spider? - Holocnemus pluchei - Female
Bonny Doon, Pine Ridge area, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
September 6, 2010
Female?
This and the opposite sex apparently, are on the outside of a house near a pipe that runs up the side, where the rising sun hits the building. Approaching 11 AM it would be in shade. But it looks much like the Cellar Spiders I submitted, so I was wondering if it could tolerate so much sun/heat.

Moved from ID Request. Marbled Cellar Spider, apparantly the pattern is pretty distinct.
