Western lynx spider

One day last week, I was clipping branches from my Indian Hawthorn plant, and on one piece I noticed a little brown spider bravely guarding her egg case (that white stuff she's on).

I didn't want to throw her away with the clippings, so I put her little branch back on the plant. Just sort of stuck it in there. There are enough other branches to hold it in place. And she's still there.
The western lynx spider has a rather similar body shape (and hairy legs!) to the Green Lynx, but it's brown, and much smaller.
