The other identifiable species was my target species, the introduced crab spider O. praticola (see photos below). So, the nexus of Ballinger Way, 15th Ave NE and 244th St SW in Shoreline now marks the northern-most known location of Ozyptila praticola in Washington. The search continues.
*As always, thank you to Rod Crawford for helping me with IDs.
