Possibly Eris flava? Do you have a face shot?

This is some sort of jumping spider, you can tell by the front legs

I was thinking to myself, *I don’t see those heavy spines on leg 1 … I should take another look at Pelegrina … wait a minute … 1, 2, 3 … this is a 6 legged spider!* -_- Lol! I need to read more and revisit this. I was hoping that bit of white visible here would clearly wrap around under the eyes but it doesn’t.
