Nursery web spider? - Pisaurina mira

Nursery web spider? - Pisaurina mira
Rideau Lakes Twp, Leeds & Grenville, Ontario, Canada
August 22, 2012
Size: 1"?
This spider was found on a hosta in a neighbour's front garden. Hosta was being dug up and garden was being leveled to be returned to grass. Spider was relocated to meadow flora near edge of woods at creek bed.

Found this . Could anyone confirm whether the spider above is Pisaurina mira? Greatly appreciated. Thanks!! ...I have looked at many wolf spider and nursery web spider pix and am still not quite sure.

Pisaurina mira

The markings seem more consistent with P. mira though. Let's see what others think.

that's what it looks like
