Spider 9 - Dolomedes vittatus

Spider 9 - Dolomedes vittatus

Out on a cool day.

Moved from ID Request. I agree it matches this one well, just want to mention it can be hard to tell these apart from scriptus, so there is some chance it could be that species as well. Spider coloring and pattern can vary making species ID from photos difficult.

due to distinct leg banding pattern I initially thought teneb or script. the dark spot on the carapace and the white spots on abdomen are why i lean toward vittatus. microscopic anatomical features are the only way to go for positive id in this genus and many other spiders as well.

Fishing spider. Great photos.
