Comments & ID Thoughts

I didn't see any pictures that looked a lot like this. I'm leaning toward maybe the barn funnel spider or maybe an invasive tiger wolf spider. Found it on a wooden pallet that was sitting outside of a wooden shed.

Hi. This is one of the nursery web spiders, Dolomedes species. Ones I have caught by hand just seem to sit on my hand. Never seen any aggression, but can be quick if spooked. A challenge to catch.
