Yesterday we took down an awning in my yard and discovered several spiders. I think these are male/female of the same species.

Moved from Spiders.

Moved
Moved from ID Request. Now this is interesting. I am not seeing the humps of E. edax on this one. I would have guessed N. crucifera if you hadn't found it with an edax. Is there any chance you can get a ventral of this one?

 
Sorry no ventral
I thought it was Crucifera at first but then didn't see the cross. Sorry no ventral shot. I'm going to have to be more complete in the future.

Thanks.
