Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this spider on my hanging basket. It was guarding a mass of new babies. It was quite large, almost as long as my finger. I have never seen one like this before. Any ideas??

My guess is Dolomedes triton.

Yes, you got it! This is the most distinctively- marked Fishing Spider in the US.
