Moved from Jumping Spiders.

I'm taking a stab
This one reminds me of a male Talavera minuta. The striped legs, generally gray color and faint chevron pattern on the abdomen are consistent. Males have white pedipalps like that too. I am unsure if that species ranges that far south.

I do not think it is Sitticus concolor. The one I've seen had a white line between the eyes and the chelicerae on the face and rusty coloration around the eyes.

You may have to wait for an expert to weigh in.

Compare the face and pedipalps of Sitticus concolor


that of Talavera minuta.

These two do seem to be very similar. The pedipalps on your spider are white which has me still leaning in the direction of T. minuta.

Sitticus concolor perhaps.

Thanks Ryan, and Chad.
Sitticus concolor is known from Oklahoma.
