Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Dolomedes Triton (Six-spotted fishing spider) male. Found without web, sitting on a piece of plastic floating in the water. Water was shallow - around half a foot deep. The spider could run across the surface as if it was normal earth.

Thanks for the photo! I haven’t seen one in person, I didn’t know they can run on top of water, I thought they just floated in one spot.
