Could be agilis or stuartii.

Based on distribution almost certain to be agilis

Sorry I can not distinguish these sibling species by images alone. They are so similar in appearance that I need to see their size-mass to be certain. I have caught agilis on the coast as far north at Basin View, where it it sympatric with stuartii. Further north on the coast it is all stuartii. Agilis also occurs further north but at higher altitudes.
