Possibly a Green Crab Spider. M. oblongus?
Your first guess has a yellow eye area, the second isn’t on this continent. Wikipedia is the easiest way to check major geographic ranges by just using the article for the species. Someone put the info from the trustworthy nonprofit World Spider Catalog into Wikipedia articles. Thank you for giving it a good try. What is the prey?
