Neoscona?  - Araneus diadematus

Neoscona? - Araneus diadematus
Sacramento County, California, USA
June 4, 2017
Size: About 6 mm
Observed sitting in center of web for past two afternoons 5:00 to sundown (have not been around to confirm its activity in other time frames). The picture does not quite convey the red-gold color the spider has when viewed in real life. If this is Neoscona, any guess as to species?

Moved from ID Request.

Not certain
Check out Araneus diadematus and see what you think

That seems to be the right ca
That seems to be the right call. Thank you very much!
