|I found this one in a bin when I was doing a big cleaning. I took this picture before releasing it outside. I almost was afraid I had doomed the thing because it was accustomed to where it was. But Saturday, I saw the same looking spider on my clematis near the house and that was close to where I let it go. |
The closest I can come up with is Enoplognatha ovata. Am I even close?
Thank you for your help.

|Oh, here is a link to one similar. Apparently this species has wide variation in colour. |

|Difficult to say, I've never seen Enoplognatha ovata with a forked dark streak on the carapace, it usually has a smudged dark line.|
There's other families which do have a forked mark.
