Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

On in-person examination, compared to other photos on this site, I believe this to be a Dolomedes scriptus (Striped fishing spider), though it's possible it's a Dark fishing spider or other closely related species. The photo looked decent on my phone, but I'm sorry that it's actually quite grainy and may not be as useful as I hoped.

Hi. without doubt this is a dark fishing spider. Dolomedes tenebrosus species.
