This is a female who just finished covering her eggs with silk. Photo taken from inside, looking out through window. No way to get a photo from the outside, unfortunately.
I asked Diane Young if she agreed with my ID, and she said, "It sure looks like S. casarum. Does it have red eyes? It should." In the second photo, the red eyes are visible, just barely.
New life stage of a species for BG.
