Spider - Dolomedes

Spider - Dolomedes
Lawrence County, Indiana, USA
June 1, 2008
Size: Approx 2 inch legspan
This large spider was hanging out on a small tree in hardwood forest. Size is estimated (it was really large).

Is this a wolf spider, or something else?

Moved from Frass.

Thanks. Good to know what it is, as I've seen several this year.

We don't see any reason to Frass this -
It seems like a perfectly good image and we only have one other image from Indiana. We would suggest cropping it a little tighter and then moving it to Dolomedes. We love the location, showing how they hide out in cracks in trees!

Not a Wolf
This is a Fishing Spider. Looks like Dolomedes genus. Maybe D. tenebrosus
