I caught that there are close similarities to several Araneus males, although this specimen has a close visual match to one under Araneus cingulatus. Unfortunatley these are the only views I have. (Should I submit these under Spider instead of ID Request?)

Moved from ID Request. I agree with that ID as well. Nice one!

Yes, cingulatus is a good possibility
Posting here is fine. The spider team will find them in either place. Maybe someone will be able to confirm the ID from looking at the palps. Nice find - nice pics!
