I agree with your ID. Thank you for posting your photos!

I hope it is the time of year, cold in North America plus holiday stuff. Some of the ID requests sit longer than others because they require more research time. And some lack the photographic info we need. None of us knows every spider species. I have a real identification key now. My parents bought it for me for Christmas though they think a big book of line drawings of spider genitals is the worst thing on a Christmas wish list EVER!
