Hi Guys,
Got this lovely lady in my garden today. She is Dolomedes instabilis, in the Pisauridae family of fishing spiders, although many in the family never go near water but build nests amongst green leaves, as this one is doing on a chili plant. Have a merry Xmas and a Happy New Year all.

Hi Trevor,
This is very exciting.  We were not aware that Dolemedes Fishing Spiders were found in Australia.  We are linking to the Brisbane Insect Web Site and another page on the same site that calls the species the Common Water Spider.
