Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

The closest I could find to it was Tutelina Elegans, but everything I found on those states they are Eastern US/Canada and I'm in Southern Oregon. The spider seemed to have a metallic iridescent sheen with a lot of different colors:yellow purple green teal etc. The coloring was most similar to beetles I've seen in the past. My friend has lived on this property 40+ years and when he looked at the photo he said he'd never seen another like it. Mostly interested in finding out more about him/her as I can't find any Oregon spider that resembles it.

I can’t find any spiders that look more similar to it than Tutelina elegans. It’s possible that they do live in your area and just haven’t been reported yet.
