Great site. Any chance you can identify this spider? Found it crawling up the window, and one in the basement. It also spins a web. Thanks,
Joe in Boston

Hi Joe,
This is a Dolomedes Fishing Spider. They are large hunting spiders that do not build webs to trap prey. If your specimen spun a a web, it is a nursery web, created just to protect the eggs and young spiderlings. These spiders are generally found near bodies of water. that do not build webs.
