Marbury, Charles County, Maryland, USA

Swimming pool casualty.

Moved from ID Request.

Do you have a dorsal image of it too?
That would help with the ID.

Sorry, no.
Looking at this again, I think this is the dorsal view.

It is not a dorsal view
I can see the areas where the legs connect to the underside of the cephalothorax.

From the patterning on the legs visible in this photo I'd think something like Castianeira, but without a dorsal photo, a "maybe" ID is as good as can be done.

As a result, this photo will be moved to the deletion queue.

Thank you for the information
Thank you for the information. Hope I will be able to find another one and try again.
