western kukulkania sp. - Kukulcania arizonica - female

western kukulkania sp. - Kukulcania arizonica - Female
San Diego County, California, USA
Ususally k. hibernalis will leave her web when aggrevated, but this species from CA is very defensive and refused to crawl out for some good overhead photos. It's obviously a kukulkania, or "filistata", but it's not a hibernalis.
