Nursery Web Spider - Pisaurina mira - female

Nursery Web Spider - Pisaurina mira - Female
Ballston Lake, Saratoga County, New York, USA
June 5, 2011
Size: ~ 12 mm body
This rather large spider was in our ravine. No web, but next to a leaf that was folded to form a chamber. ID help appreciated.
Addendum: I went back later and she was in the chamber.
