Hobo Spider + Egg Sac - Eratigena agrestis - female

Hobo Spider + Egg Sac - Eratigena agrestis - Female
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA
January 22, 2019
5 Days later, I came back to check and see if the spider or egg sac was still there, and I found the completed egg sac. It really stands out, as I believe it is a little over 1cm in diameter (didn't actually measure).

I've discovered in the past that Hobo spiders seem to wrap their egg sacs in a layer of loose dirt, after which they cover the whole thing again in another layer of web, which is what is seen here.
