Cyclosa sp. ? - Cyclosa

Cyclosa sp. ? - Cyclosa
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
December 4, 2017
Size: 4.5 mm
This spider was in an oak hammock, hanging from a web on which it had attached wrapped bodies of prey. I'm pretty sure it is genus Cyclosa. Does an expert recognize the species?

Yes, and in the second image
you can clearly see the tubercles that would make this Cyclosa turbinata

 
You two
are so knowledgeable. I certainly appreciate the genus confirmation and the species ID!!
