Alan, thanks ....

for that opinion. Yes I had seen those pictures but thought as they are of spiderlings the colour match wasnt significant. In my experience Dolomedes are also very dark and the white stripes very prominent, but that's perhaps because I only encounter females.

But ..

.. I thought it was a young Dolomedes, that was why it was pale. Must confess though the palps do look rather swollen - hard to tell from the photo.
