Female Spider? - Dolomedes striatus

Female Spider? - Dolomedes striatus
48.163490N 53.966777W (WGS84), Clarenville, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada
June 26, 2007
Size: 13mm body length
I think that this is a female. Is that correct? Unfortunately, I had my MP-E-65mm 1x-5x lens mounted when I saw this spider, so I couldn't get a wide enough shot to show the full span of the legs. It was crawling on some sheeting that formed the side of an old shed. I can't ID it but I think I'd guess a Wolf Spider if I had to guess something.

It
looks like a female.
As far as I know, this is the only species found in your area.
Maybe have your expert look at these images.
If correct, some triton images may be misplaced.

Makes us think rather
of a nursery web spider in the genus Pisaurina. Check in the guide here while you wait to hear from Jeff.

 
Pisaurina brevipes, maybe?
Gravid female Pisaurina brevipes perhaps? I'm pretty sure P. brevipes' range includes your area. Am I close, anyone?
