It Makes Sense!

I find it SO fascinating that a particular species won't pop up on iNat for months at a time, but then suddenly it comes up on the same day from multiple sources. I mean, it makes sense, considering how the natural world works. But it's so cool to see it happen in our seemingly happenstance encounters! Today's sightings of note were almost back-to-back Zoropsis spinimana spiders observed by @docricketts and @gyrrlfalcon. Awesome!

And perhaps because they don't appear that often, I misidentified mine at first! Thanks for the help, @tigerbb !

You bet!

Here's some great info on your spider: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn74143.html

It appears it was introduced to the Bay area in the 90's, and this is the time of year they start appearing in and around homes. So, again, it makes sense! :D I just love the combination of nature and data!

I have a spider that I observed and I believe it is a Whitebanded Fishing Spider but I am unsure. If you get a chance do you think you could take a glance at and tell me what you think?
