Effectively, is a Ctenidae. However, I don't know the species. Although, could be a Ctenus sp. Thanks to BugEric and ChunXingWong for the suggestion.

Ctenidae? Mmm, is very possible. I will investigate. Thanks.

Looks similar to a Ctenus species in US.

I don't think this is a wolf spider. Family Ctenidae might be a possibility, though.
