Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm very curious to find out what kind of spider this was, I found it in my basement last year and thought it was one of the biggest spiders I've seen in Ohio, my guess is that it's some kind of fishing spider but I don't know for sure I was hoping I could identify it by submitting a photo on this website.

I think that this is a dark fishing spider, based on the striped legs. I believe that these are harmless.


That’s definitely a Dolomedes tenebrosus
(Dark Fishing Spider) and they are harmless to humans.
