Raft spider, Fishing spider

Dolomedes pallitarsis


This canny spider had chosen a good spot to hang out judging by the amount of this species of Arisaema we saw. The pollination rate must be very high.

Thanks for looking SmallWonders. You've doubled my spider id knowledge tonight, so at least I have an idea where to start.

I'm still not certain that this is not a Nursery Web spider sp. But...
I am no arachnid specialist and I am not familiar with species in your area. Hopefully someone with expert experience can help :)

Updated with close up of eyes. I guess this is some kind of wolf spider, as the top pair of eyes is larger....
