Hi, this looks like a Wandering Spider (Ctenidae). Tentatively a Ctenus species, there are a lot of them that are not yet well represented online and a lot of the papers I looked at were not in English and lacked the sort of illustrations that would help me figure this out. Leg IV of your spider is interesting though and I did find a diagram for leg IV of Ctenus sinuatipes that looks very similar so this looks like it could be something close to that.


For me it seems like a Lycosa.
