We would also have said
A. cingulatus

green Araneus sp.
I'm not sure which one this is. There are several green Araneus. I'll have to do a little more looking, and in the meantime maybe John B. will know which one it is? My guess is Araneus cingulatus.

Please crop your images closer to "just the bug" click "edit" and update the images.

Also, please add the date the image was taken.

Add county info, etc. (please add all useful info)

I cropped it for us.

A shame we can't get a date on this. Without any "scientific" data these images just become pretty pix with little value.
