Hairy Spider at Manatee Springs - Dolomedes okefinokensis

Hairy Spider at Manatee Springs - Dolomedes okefinokensis
Chiefland, Levy County, Florida, USA
April 8, 2006
Size: 5 - 6 in.
The closest thing I could find was Hogna carolinensis or maybe Sosippus floridanus but I don't really think so, the eyes look wrong.
I found him hanging around the opening of a hole in a tree, he didn't move at all, even when I got the camera 2 inches away to snap a shot. I came by about 20 mins later and he still hadn't moved. It was in the afternoon. There appeared to be a we in the hole. If there was a web, it was horizontal rather than vertical.
Based on the eyes, I would think the Lycosidae family, but I'd like to get more specific, a species if possible.
