Indeed it is; likely in the genus Xysticus - see Xysticus elegans photo - Tom Murray photos at pbase.com for an image.

This is a cobweb/comb-footed spider (family Theridiidae) in the genus Steatoda; perhaps Steatoda borealis - see female Steatoda borealis photo - Tom Murray photos at pbase.com for an image.
