Large Fishing Spider - Dolomedes triton - female

Large Fishing Spider - Dolomedes triton - Female
Tweed, Hastings, Ontario, Canada
June 18, 2016
Size: ~ 20 mm
Dolomedes striatus? I think this spider might have been paralyzed by a wasp. It was torpid and barely responsive when I found it and it eventually stopped moving. I waited for a while to see if a wasp would retrieve it but didn't see any.

Dolomedes triton - Six-spotted Fishing Spider
D. striatus would have very prominent bands on the sides of the abdomen. You can also see the spots which point to D. triton.
