A. Chalcodes?

A. Chalcodes?

I saved about thirty of these from my pool this morning. Due to the number of them, I was thinking maybe a wolf spider carrying its babies fell in. After looking at pics, it doesn't resemble a wolf spider, but possibly A. Chalcodes. Any ideas? Tucson, AZ, 1/4 to 1/2 inch dls.
No way to tell for certain at this size, since A. chalcodes territory overlaps with other species with slings that basically look exactly the same.
 
Probably got washed in if yall got some of this monsoon rain. Or after a drink if you didn't. Good save, either way!
 
Definitely a tarantula baby. I want to live in an area where tarantulas fall into my pool instead of picking Opiliones out of my rain barrel :shifty:.
