Long-legged Sac Spider II  (three photos)
Cheiracanthium - "Yellow Sac Spider"

I have only found this little yellow sac spider with its interesting spotted pattern outside in leaves or in crevices. 
I have never found one like this in the house, although the regular-looking yellow sac spiders from Page I are all over
my house.  So, I don't know if this is a different species or not.  Regardless, these are, arguably, very beautiful spiders.

All three of these spiders, to my knowledge, still reside in Taylorsville, UT.  I was reading that some
people think they are more green according to how much time they spend out in the greenery.  It's
a theory.  This last spider was "hiding" from the camera and not doing a very good job of it.
