Lepthyphantes minutus?

I found this small spider in the house; it's smaller than Zygiella with distinctive chevron markings on the abdomen. I couldn't get a view of the business end, he or she wouldnt move but I believe it to be adult female and my searches have led to a close match with Lepthyphantes minutus in the Linyphiidae family.

Zygiella x-notata, underside

Spotted on the outside of the window at night, ID later confirmed when it turned around!
