Nice photos
Was this associating with a male? This looks like an agilis group female based on markings. Please compare to this photo of H. carolinensis by G. B. Edwards.

 
I did find an adult male noti
I did find an adult male notialis a little later, in the same general area, so thought the female must be notialis, too. However, based on these photos, G. B. Edwards identified this Habronattus as an adult female carolinensis. And after reviewing
G. B.'s photos of female notialis and female carolinensis on Proszynski's site, I agree that the abdominal pattern of this female Habronattus more closely resembles that of carolinensis rather than that of notialis. We'll be sampling for spiders at this site during the next 12 months, so hope to collect specimens which will resolve any issues about this ID.

 
georgiensis?
The range map for Habronattus georgiensis (H. agilis group), falls in that region. It seems like it should be present in the area, especially in sandy substrates.

 
I think you are correct that
I think you are correct that it's georgiensis. I just read Griswold's descriptions of females in the agilis group, and the descriptions of the patterns around the AME's certainly seem to match those of this female, as do the patterns shown by agilis group females in images on BG. I'll have G. B. review my images again and see if he agrees that it's georgiensis rather than carolinensis. According to info I have from him, he does have a specimen of georgiensis from Okaloosa County in the FSCA collection--probably the same as the male in his image on Proszynski's site. If G. B. agrees with the ID as georgiensis, I'll make a page for this species and move these images to it.

 
H. georgiensis
That would be a new species for the site and a good find. Page made already.

 
GB reexamined my images and d
GB reexamined my images and does agree that this little girl was georgiensis. So thanks Ben for suggesting this species as the correct ID. I found a penultimate male georgiensis this past week--also on Eglin AFB, but in Walton Co--so will add images of it to the guide.
