Pardosa male - cf. vadosa - Pardosa vadosa - Male
Parker Dam Camp, ca. 0.75 mi S of Parker Dam, San Bernardino County, California, USA

Size: 4.5 mm
David Vander Pluym found this adult male lycosid in a muddy area along a creek. He collected it and sent it to me for an ID. It was DOA, but David has some live pics of this same individual here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/25135836.

The palp seems to place it in the lapidicina species group and I think it's a pretty good match to P. vadosa, but I'll try to get a better look at the very dark palp later... Comments welcome.
