    Found this spider in my house, sorry for the novice question but does anyone know what kind it is?

    Looks like a Dolomedes.

    Thanks for the ultra quick ID, definitely looks like that what it is!

    Proportionally Philodromidae doesn't work very well. One of the diagnostic features of the family is that their second pair of legs are the longest, and are usually significantly longer than pairs 3 and 4. The relatively uniform leg length through the pairs suggests more towards Dolomedes here, IMO.

    Yes, but they can be difficult to tell apart depending on the position of the legs. It's probably a Dolomedes, but it would be easier to tell for sure if we had more pics to look at. :)

    This is an obvious Philodromid, but it's not easy to tell if you only look at the legs on this pic: https://bit.ly/2BkkNY2
