Unknown Spider Alaska - Araneus marmoreus

Unknown Spider Alaska - Araneus marmoreus
Kenai Peninsula County, Alaska, USA
July 1, 2005
Size: 1.5 inches
This spider lives under the eaves of house.

Orb weaver.
Very spectacular orb weaver! Might be the marbled orb weaver, Araneus marmoreus, believe it or not. That is an extremely variable species. Most likely in the genus Araneus at the least. Thank you for sharing:-)

 
Araneus marmoreous
Thank you for your reply... i think you identified it... the colors through me off... but hey didn't want to get closer to take a better picture... thank you for your time!

Weaver
That is a magnificent spider. I am impressed. Damned if I know what it is.

 
thanks for your time any way.
thanks for your time any way.... really appreciate someone dubbed it already... we think it's a Araneous marmoreus

 
Araneus marmoreus
This is what is sometimes called the "eyeball" morph of the marbled spider, Araneus marmoreus. I suspect that this is a western morph, and even out here in Alberta, probably about 1 in 20 at most have this appearance.
