I found this spider at Zintete Camp, February '17.

ID would be appreciated!

Hi Klaas,

Seems to me like a male from the Pardosa family.

Good luck,
Dick

Hello Klaas,

Do you have another photo of this spider, preferably more from the front? I can't distinguish the eyes, but by the way it holds its front legs, I suspect it might be a jumping spider (Salticidae). Do you remember its size?

Cheers, Auke

Hi Auke,

Sorry, no other pictures from this one. It's been a while, but I think it was like something between 1 and 2 cm body size...

Thanx!

It seems pretty securely one of the family Lycosidae, of which Pardosa is one of the many poorly defined genera - hence i'd suggest D.Lock was in right ballpark. I'd expect it's holding legs like that simply as was between steps on uneven ground - although often leg posture can indeed be a helpful indication.
