Comments & ID Thoughts
I saw this spider on my bathroom floor as I was getting out of the shower. I tossed a t-shirt onto it, then contained it with a plastic container, slid a manilla envelope underneath and let it go outside with my camera ready to take a picture.
I have never seen a spider this size in my home before!
Going by your pictures, I would guess a Dark Fishing Spider.
Can anyone confirm this?

Yeah, I think it’s either a Dark Fishing Spider (Dolomedes tenebrosus) or a Striped Fishing Spider (Dolomedes scriptus).
You got it, filed. 🙂
