Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Hi! I’m looking to confirm this is a fishing spider? It was seen in my garden shed converted to an office and just want to make sure it’s a “friendly” spider! I did look at the list of 33 stated they have been seen in though and Idaho (where I am Is not on the list) TYIA!!

This looks like Platycryptus undatus, also known as the tan jumping spider. They are completely harmless and very shy, but they follow you with their eyes if you walk by one. This species has excellent vision.
