Lampshade Weaver - Hypochilus pococki - female

Lampshade Weaver - Hypochilus pococki - Female
Old Sugarlands Trail, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Sevier County, Tennessee, USA
August 8, 2008
Size: circa 15 mm body length

If I am interpreting the NPS map correctly, this was on the Old Sugarlands Trail, which runs along the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River. This was one of several spiders at the base of a cliff with lots of poison ivy growing up it.
