Could see this spider crossing the street - Antrodiaetus pacificus - female

Could see this spider crossing the street - Antrodiaetus pacificus - Female
Bellevue, Washington, USA
May 16, 2011
Size: 1 inch
This spider was crossing the street and it was large enough to pick out from the corner of my eye. As I approached it, it stopped and I was able to get close and take this picture. My phone was probably only an inch or two away from it.

Moved from ID Request. I also think it's a female. Compare to male here

Antrodiaetus sp.
Almost certainly this is Antrodiaetus pacificus, but I'm no expert. This is a folding-door spider common in the northwest. I almost want to say this is a female, but it's a little hard to judge from this angle and those palps do look a little male.

I'm just down the road from you in Redmond, btw.
