Wolf spider?  - Eustala anastera - male

Wolf spider? - Eustala anastera - Male
Gimli, Manitoba, Manitoba, Canada
I found this guy in my tent. It looked like a wolf spider at first, but I've never seen one with a yellow back and these markings.

Moved from ID Request.

I would say an orbweaver (Araneidae), and although the coloration is somewhat bright, I would say that it looks like a Neoscona to me, but I would wait for more of an expert than myself.

Orb weaver
Probably something in Eustala.

Yes, that's better.
I agree with Chad. Looking at the Eustala, I'd probably go with this genus instead.

Here's a link to that genus.
