Philodromus?

Moved to Philodromus dispar
Moved from Running Crab Spiders. Yep, you got the genus right. I also live in WA and the invasive Philodromus dispar has become so common in my area that I have come to memorize what it looks like (and the adult males are pretty neat and very distinctive, all black body). Great shot, by the way!
