Comments & ID Thoughts
female wolf spider? Was on a rhododendron I was pruning. Was carrying an egg sack by mouth. It isn’t in the photo. It was dropped when I jostled her but I reunited her with it. The area is mixed urban/forested/wetlands.

Not a Wolf Spider. They carry their egg sacs attached to the spinnerets at the back of the abdomen. Carrying it with her jaws, it would be one of the Fishing Spiders and judging by the size of it, one of the species of the genus Dolomedes, part of the Nursery Web Weaver family Pisauridae.
