Moved
Moved from Dendryphantinae. I'm not sure why I was cautious before. This is definitely a Pelegrina proterva.

Moved
Moved from Jumping Spiders. Not sure if this is Eris or Pelegrina. Moved so subfamily for now.

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

 
first time noticing this spider
I don't recall having seen this particular spider before...the two that I believe to possibly be M and F were on the same leaf. I also got a picture of what I think is a Schizocosa crassipes yesterday that I posted under Schizocosa with a pretty high degree of confidence. Also, I was wondering if you have a preferred method for capture and containment of Wolf Spiders for a ventral shot. I am thinking that there are ten + species that run around in the yard here, including a burrowing monster that I haven't seen since I dug one up a few years ago...I would like to be able to make a list to species as complete as possible. As always, thanks for your help.
