I can't even confirm a spider lol. That is one tiny creature. My old eyes aren't what they once were

It's a wolf spider (Lycosidae) or a young fishing spider (family Pisauridae, genus Dolomedes). I lean toward lycosid, but I can't be 100% sure from these images.

Pardosas look more darker than this guy I think.. but I am agreeing with Lycosid. Now looking back I have seen the same ones carrying eggsacs like wolf spiders do and I guess I always assumed they were grass spiders since I imagine wolfs as huge tarantula looking things :rofl:

Pardosa can vary tremendously in color

An easy way to ID agelenopsis is by looking at the spinnerets. in Agelenopsis, they're very long, giving the abdomen a very 'sharp' appearance
