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:

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?
