Dear Bugman, We found this spider in a plastic bag in a drawer. Can you identify it? Many thanks!

The manner in which this spider keeps its front legs together as well as the general shape of the spider indicates it is a Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira. The markings are atypical of most images of this species we receive, however, there is a photo on BugGuide that matches your individual.
