Is this one of the wolf spiders? I've frequently seen them with egg sacs, but not with any webbing as this one has.

looks like Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina
Possibly Pisaurina mira


 
Thanks.
It does look like it and it appears to have the "nursery web" mentioned in the Audubon guide. Eyes also match the 4 in straight line in front row and 4 in U-shape in back row.
