Pisaurina? - Dolomedes triton

Pisaurina? - Dolomedes triton
Grand Forks, Grand Forks County, North Dakota, USA

Size: Total Length ~ 2.5 cm
My first guess was Agelenidae, but I see no long spinnerets on this specimen. My second guess was Lycosidae, but the position and length of the first two pairs of legs looked wrong. Could this be in the family Pisauridae? Thanks for any help! ;-)


Yes Pisauridae
A view of the eyes from the front will help with ID.

Thanks, Lynette!
Thanks for the help, Lynette. Sadly, I've only this one view of this specimen, and so I've no nice frontal close-up shot to help with further identification. ;-( Perhaps I'll find another specimen to photograph in the next week or two. I hope so!
