Strange looking spider in Ontario - Pisaurina mira - female

Strange looking spider in Ontario - Pisaurina mira - Female
Campbellville, Ontario, Canada
May 26, 2012
Never seen a spider like this around my area, found it by my door. Would like to know what it is, I think it might be a nursery web spider.

Thanks

Moved
Moved from ID Request. Yes, it's P. mira. Dolomedes fimbriatus is a European spider.

hmm..
Looks like a Raft spider (Dolomedes fimbriatus)
I'm not sure if Raft spiders and nursery webs are the same thing though

guess
Nursery web is my guess too.

 
Yes it is!
Pisaurina mira
