Found this in Chocowinity, NC in the garage. House is off the river on a canal access. We see these all the time in our areas of Eastern NC and are not sure exactly what it is. Some call it a Wolf Spider, and it resembles a Dark Fishing Spider. Can you tell what it is?
My husband, who is a home inspector and sees this all the time, says they are not aggressive. Not sure why they need to be, at that size… I would hurt myself!
There is not enough detail to be certain, but we would lean toward Fishing Spider in genus Dolomedes.
