Xysticus ferox

at least that's what I think it is, a medium sized crab spider. I am puzzled by the pedipalps though - they look male to me, but the rest of the spider doesn't match up with any of the males in my book. This one fell with a little thwack onto my deck. It might have fallen off the roof, but I don't know. Either way, I noticed it and moved it to my coffee table and it promptly went to the underside. I flipped the table up and got out the OM 90mm and the 25mm extenstion tube. This is f8 or 11
