Possibly a kind of fishing spider? The body shape looks right, although this isn’t my area of expertise.

Yes it is. A male. The markings don’t quite match Dolomedes scriptus or D. tenebrosus. It’s closer to a Dark Fishing Spider than a Striped. It might be within the variations of a species group.

Many thanks! How do you tell the difference between the two species?
