Pennsylvania Spider for ID - Allocosa funerea

Pennsylvania Spider for ID - Allocosa funerea
Kenhorst, Berks County, Pennsylvania, USA
July 6, 2020
Size: 6 mm body length
Not looking at its best. This hapless hopeless helpless creature was being dragged along the sidewalk to its eventual doom and tomb by the wasp in the other image. The wasp was biding its time 2 or so feet away waiting for me as I stepped in to photograph. When I backed off it would come back and resume dragging till it found a big enough crack in the sidewalk edge to venture down to bury. Submitting for spider ID; the wasp goes for ID in another image group.
