Moved from True Spiders.

Looks like antmimic
Castianeira amoena, but I'm not an expert...
nice find!

Thanks J
I didn't think it looked quite right for a jumper but thought it might be one anyway because it definitely jumped like one. After getting this shot I attempted to get it to crawl up on my finger so I could raise it up for a frontal shot of it's face and when I touched it, it jumped about a foot up onto my pants leg and a split second later jumped again and I lost sight of it and never did find it back. Your ID looks correct to me. Thank you.
