Comments & ID Thoughts

The spider was found on a Skunk Cabbage in a wetland area. Looked at a lot of picture on the Internet but did not find a match.

Pisaurina mira, American Nursery Web Spider with “center line pattern.”
Nice photo! The reason this was difficult for you to identify was that there are 5 or 6 markings variations for the species and this one isn’t often photographed. They are most often tan with a wide brown stripe. This one is fantastic with the white body and black, gray, and brown markings! https://bugguide.net/node/view/2919 The link to BugGuide’s markings display shows this as #5.
