Found in st Augustine Florida. I think it’s a white banded fishing spider. Is it harmless
I think you’re right. This is a white banded fishing spider. Pretty much harmless. Impressively large though,
Hi. Definitely a male white banded fishing spier, Dolomedes albineus.
While they can bite, their venom has only little effect.
Rather reluctant to bite, save for a mama guarding eggs or young. I used o make challenge of catching these by hand and simply never bitten, they will run first.
