Pardosa amentata, in common with many of the hunting (or "Wolf" spiders) can often be seen running on the ground on hot days. To obtain a good view of the pedipalp it is usually necessary to dissect the pedipalp from the spider and lay it out so that a good ventral view is obtained. The photo is of an adult female, with its egg sac attached to its spinnerets.
