The red things are the "cheliceral bosses" and they aren't useful in identifying any spiders that I'm aware of. It's eyes preclude it from being Pardosa, it doesn't have the correct cephalothorax pattern for Pirata, and based on what has been collected in the vic. before and what I remember Alopecosa to look like, I'd go with that genus.
