Slender Crab Spider

Hi Kim,
We turned to the Natural History of Orange County site to view Spider thumbnails and we thought your individual resembled the Running Crab Spider in the genus
Tibellus that was pictured there, but alas, we were basing that on a single image.  We then searched the genus on BugGuide and we believe you have a Slender Crab Spider, Tibellus chamberlini.

Location: Antioch, California
