Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

First spotted over a week ago. Found it in the same spot this week when I opened the shed. It was first thought it might be a Brown Recluse, but I don't think so after getting a closer look.

This is one of the fishing spiders in the genus Dolomedes. I think it’s a dark fishing spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus. The fishing spiders are impressively large but not dangerous.
