Found this creature in my kitchen in southeastern Virginia in May 2016. I captured him in a cup and set him free outside, away from the house. It is quite large, What type of spider is this?
This is a harmless Fishing Spider in the genus Dolomedes, and they are sometimes called Dock Spiders. We are guessing you have a body of water near your home. Because of your kindness, we are tagging your posting with the Bug Humanitarian Award.
