large spider - Pisaurina mira - male

large spider - Pisaurina mira - Male
Elmira, Chemung County, New York, USA
May 9, 2013
Size: about 3 inches
He was very fast, and tried to hide from me when I attempted to get his picture.

Moved
Moved from ID Request. The legs aren't included in spider measurement, so these males are usually around 3/4 of an inch.

 
Thanks for that bit of information, now I know for next time. :)

Nursery Web Spider

Thank you! I think you're right.
