I don't know whether this girl is Schizocosa, Pardosa, or something else. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

It does look very like a Schizocosa. Definitely not a Pardosa anyway - face shape wrong.

Moved from Spiders.

 
Thanks!

Size estimate?
I don't know that we'll be able to ID it, but size & habitat will help if we can get the right person to look at it.

 
Size + habitat
Thanks, Lynette. She was approximately 3/4" (not including legs) and was walking on a blacktop road in the middle of a hardwood forest, a few hundred feet away from a small pond.
