Found this on a web in the passenger side of my car this morning. Can't find out what he is through any online guides.

Looks like one of the Orchard
Looks like one of the Orchard Spiders. Nice photo!!


I believe it is as well, just not sure which type it happens to be. Thank you.

Luckily, we think the current nomenclature
has only one species. So this is Leucauge venusta - Venusta Orchard Spider. Can be found in the guide here. Love the "glass" legs!

The missing orange/red spot was what had me confused with the other images of them, but one of those pages cleared that up. Thanks so much!

If you would like to add this to the images in our guide,
You can tag it (below your picture), navigate to the correct image page here, then hit "move tagged images." Nice shot!
