Thanks for the info. I think you may be right, although I can't find many black individuals of Dolomedes tenebrosus while searching on the internet.  (reply...)

We have several variations on this species of Periwinkle. As they live together, I keep wondering if the differences are genetic or diet.

Good Photo Elijah, I used to see these on friends docks in Ontario on occasion. I think this may be Dolomedes tenebrosu, but I'm not that well up on spiders.

Sea urchins feed voraciously on kelp, as well as other types of Protists, small marine creatures, and detritus. Scientists compare the populations of kelp and sea urchins to estimate the health of an area.  (reply...)
