Possible Fisher? - Pisaurina mira

Possible Fisher? - Pisaurina mira
Jackson, Jackson County, Michigan, USA
June 8, 2009
Size: 3/4 inch body
Found in our bathtub in the room we are remodeling. Not sure how it got in. Is a bit jumpy, no web to be found. We have been gone for a few days and he was just sitting inside unable to climb the walls out of the tub. Captured and released after pictures of course. Can't seem to find a picture of a fisher with this coloration though plus the picture shows the body to be smooth instead of hairy like the rest of it.

Looks like a wandering male
looking for a mate. A Nursery web spider in the genus Pisaurina

 
WOW!
What speed! Thank you much. 4 Minutes must be a record I would think!
