    Default ID Please!

    A friend of mine just found this in her house. We're in southern New York. An ID would be more than helpful!

    Thanks!

    If it helps, it was found on the bathroom wall and was a bit smaller than palm size.

    That's a SPIDER, Adam.








    Sometimes I just cannot stifle myself, and I apologize, with the hope that some other forum member who is not such a smartass will answer your query. Might be a Dock Spider or Wolf Spider at that size but arachnids are way out of my area of expertise.

    HAHAHA! You're a piece of work, Doc! Likewise, I dont mess with arachnids either. Now that I look though, it does look quite similar to a dock spider. I wish my friend had a better cam to get a more detailed shot. I'm sure Jeremy or someone will have a deffinate ID. Thanks for the input Mr. Sarcastic....sorry I meant Dr. Alan!

    My first thought is some kind of Wolf, but it also looks like some Huntsmans that I've seen recently.

    I guess I'm not much more help than the Doc

    The spider is in the genus Dolomedes, the family Pissauridae. From an arachnophile friend of mine.

    Uhhhhhh.. I just looked it up, and it is Pisauridae. Although, I have to say the pun must be my friend's, as I just copy and pasted without looking it up myself

    Lol.. pretty funny though.
