Cybaeus spider- Red with black abdomen and white markings? - Callobius severus

Cybaeus spider- Red with black abdomen and white markings? - Callobius severus
Gaston, Oregon, Yamhill County, Oregon, USA
July 1, 2014
Found this on the sill of my sliding glass window. My thermostat says 98 degrees outside- and this thing seems pretty cooked. It's abdomen was very gelatinous looking when I transferred it to the paper plate and it barely moved. Im thinking it's a type of Cybaeus spider, but I'm not sure what kind and I cant really find out much on it's toxicity, bite, etc. My daughter is a spider freak- too bad she isnt here at the moment.
