Orb weaver - Zygiella nearctica

Orb weaver - Zygiella nearctica
Jefferson, White Mountains, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
May 5, 2007
Size: ~5mm

Moved from Zygiella. ID based on recorded range.

Moved from Furrow spiders. I've been looking at these for a bit today and this one just doesn't fit Larinioides. I'd say it has to be one of the Zygiella.

Moved from Orb Weavers.

Our first thought is Larinioides,
but the white pattern on the back seems quite reduced.
