Comments & ID Thoughts

Hello everybody: so I am submitting my first spider picture (hurra!) and I would appreciate any help you can give me to identify it. It was taken in San Jose, Chile (near Cajon del Maipo and Santiago) inside the house in a gated community at the foot of some hills where they are excavating and building up many condominiums. I am pretty sure it is a Lycosidae (Wolf-spider) but I have no idea as to the genus or the species.
I have about 40 pictures of spiders I have taken in 4 different continents and I will begin submitting them to get your help and learn more about them. Thanks very much for any feedback you can give me!

Alopecosa michaelseni is an option for Chile but I can’t tell if it’s actually a match. There’s a photo of one in “Dupérré & Harms, 2018” but it’s of a preserved specimen, so it’s quite discolored.

Genus placement is tentative.
