Am I on the right track to assume this is Dolomedes? If so, which species? Thanks for your help!

Moved from Spiders.

Moved from ID Request. Yes that looks right. Do you have a more dorsal shot?

Unfortunately I do not. This photo is more than 3 years old - before I knew anything about spiders. At this point I'm thinking tenebrosus?

That would be
My guess as well. Just not sure we can rule out scriptus

To my eyes, the abdominal pattern
(as best as I can make out from this angle) more closely resembles tenebrosus. I'm not seeing the chevrons characteristic of scriptus - but again, the angle is problematic.
