Sac Spider

Sac Spider
Logy Bay, Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada
May 2, 2006
Size: 18 mm body (approx)
I snapped a small dead branch off of a tree in our back yard today and when I looked at the broken end, there was a spider emerging from a cocoon-like sac within the branch. The hollow space inside the branch was 5 mm in diameter. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a photo before the spider had completely emerged from his home. I did take several after he began crawling around (and FAST too!). These are the ones I'm posting here. Can anyone help with an ID? I found the spider about 1:30 PM local time (NDT).
