Pardosa distincta? - Schizocosa - female

Pardosa distincta? - Schizocosa - Female
Rapid City, Pennington County, South Dakota, USA
May 11, 2008
Size: ~6.5 mm
Found running along a low stonewall at roadside on the Skyline Drive ridge above Rapid City.

Looks like a match to me in Kaston's How to Know the Spiders: legs relatively long, with the metatarsi and tarsi quite thin. What think ye?

The dorsal pattern (carapace especially) seems like a Schizocosa. Was this one ID'd under the scope?

That's a good question, Mandy. It goes all the way back to 2008, so I am not sure; perhaps not. :-(
