Adult Female!
Laura, this spider has lost her front left leg. This allows us to see down to the tip of her palp and I can assure you that the 2nd image is a sharp enough image to see the thinness and the almost parallel lines of it, all the way to the end. BTW - I filmed an adult male, just a few days ago and I tried to get the best shots for everyone to see! Also, I just loaded a new video of a guess-who Mommy Wolf Spider! Thanks

Adults and juveniles both ...
have slender palps. It very well could be an adult female, from the looks of it it probably is ... however there is no indication of size or a ventral showing an epigynum here so I can't be sure this isn't a juvenile male.

Moved from Wolf Spiders.
