Cool find! Your bark scorpions look much darker than our Centruroides sculpturatus here in AZ. Actually, I wasn't aware that there were more Centruroides out there. Good luck on your masters and thanks for not squashing this mamma :)
Thanks Jack! good call. I'm definitely going with the female Phidippus johnsoni as its coloration is a perfect match and the distribution of the western US fits. The other species you mentioned is East Coast and I spotted this in Cali. Thanks again!
