Ground spider? - Pisaurina mira

Ground spider? - Pisaurina mira
Milton, Rock County, Wisconsin, USA
April 14, 2011
I think this is a ground spider (family Gnaphosidae), but I would like confirmation. I found and photographed the spider on the ground in a Wisconsin upland woodland. The image was made one day after a prescribed fire had been run through the woods, hence the dark, nearly vegetation-free background.
