I found on your amazing website it’s Dolomedes.
Do you have a latin name for it?

This does appear to be one of the Nursery Web Spiders, but we cannot say for certain if it is a Fishing Spider in the genus Dolomedes. We are postdating this submission to post live to our site in the coming week as we will be away from the office a few days for the holidays.
I hope you had a good holiday… a time ago…
Do you remember my question about a (probably) fishing spider?
I’ll put is again on the website, ok?
thanks a lot
We did have a nice holiday and we were never able to determine a more accurate identification for your spider. It does remind us more of Trechalea gertschi than the Dolomedes species we are used to posting. We will contact Mandy Howe to see if she can provide an identificaton.
