Is this a Lycosid anyone? Thanks!

Moved from ID Request.
Definitely a Lycosid. This is tentatively placed here, the pattern and range fits with Gladicosa huberti ... I haven't seen any confirmed images of those (just a drawing) so I'm not sure that's right. If you see another of these (has to be an adult) and want to send it out to be examined under a microscope we might be able to place it to species.
