Dolomedes vittatus? - Tinus peregrinus

Dolomedes vittatus? - Tinus peregrinus
Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
June 4, 2015
Size: 2-3 inches
This sucker ran across the entire pool after I took the picture, so I assume Dolemedes... However, I can't find a picture anywhere that exactly matches this spider.

Thank you for the ID
Very interesting! Of note, it looks like this species is not well-studied. I couldn't find, at least in the two resources listed, a description of this species running on water. They can. It ran across the entire pool after I took the picture and then went up the far tile wall into some bushes.

Moved from ID Request.
