Callobius pictus spider

This spider was crawling across our ceiling. I photographed it holding the camera in one hand, a headlamp in the other, balanced on my desk.

I id'd this on, and it seems to match other photos of Callobius pictus quite well.

One reader also points to this handy guide for identifying common insects.
