Steatoda or not - Pimoa - female

Steatoda or not - Pimoa - Female
Sherwood, Washington County, Oregon, USA
January 10, 2014
Size: 35 mm legspan
Common in my backyard, but never inside. They live on fallen logs and are the most common fall/winter spider here. They look like Steatoda but not like the ones I see indoors (S. grossa?). Body length is about 9 mm and legspan about 35 mm. I would appreciate an identification and will take more photos if necessary. Males are easily found (sorry, no photo at the moment).

Moved from Cobweb Spiders. I'm pretty sure these are something in the genus Pimoa.

 
Thank you much, Lynette! The
Thank you much, Lynette! The photos of others in this genus exactly match the specimens I see in my backyard. Most specimens I see are less robust.
