Pisaurina mira - Nursery Web Spider
I think. Compare with these.

 
Agreed
Thanks! Although I'm a novice at this, I have to agree that the eye pattern looks right and the coloring looks like the "broken" pattern listed on the info page, but darker than most of the other examples in BugGuide:

(Let me know if this kind of cross-referencing is against etiquette... but I looked through all the images, and it seems right to share the result.)

 
Yes
That's exactly what we like to do when we're talking about other images we've seen in the guide. As I'm sure you saw, P. mira can vary in pattern & coloring quite a bit.
