Dolomedes tenebrosus - female

Dolomedes tenebrosus - Female
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA
March 18, 2011
Size: 14 mm (body only)
I think this might be a Dolomedes tenebrosus female, but would like confirmation. I found her outside my back door in the late afternoon 2 days ago. I saw her again this morning, VERY cold and not moving, so I could measure her easily. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Moved from Spiders. Yes I think your ID is correct.

 
Thanks!
Do you think I should call her an "adult" or "immature"?

 
Guess
based on the time of year and the size, I'd say she might be one molt from maturity?

 
Thanks again
You're the best!
