Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Since it was trapped in my bathtub, I went back a few hours later and took a closer photograph before trapping it and releasing it outside. In this sharper photo, it still looks very much like the Agelenopsis Actuosa in your selection of file pictures.

Hi I’m just a site visitor but I think this spider might be a closer match. – Dolomedes tenebrosus – The dark fishing spider. https://spiderid.com/picture/96570/. It does look like Agelenopsis Actuosa but I think they are a bit smaller and they have 2 spinnerets sticking out of their rear end. When I saw your first picture for some reason I thought the object in it was a hoover attachment and got the scale all wrong. 🙂


A Hoover attachment?! 🙂 I don’t vacuum (no carpeting for 25 years) and I guess I forgot what these cleaning things look like. I agree on Dolomedes tenebrosus, it has orange and black markings.
