Spider - Leucauge venusta black and white Spider - Leucauge venusta

Moved from Orchard Orbweaver.

Moved from Mangora.

These look like Mangora maculata. In my experience it often has the "spots" merged into a dark area a the posterior end of the abdomen quite unlike the illustration in Kaston's "How to Know the Spiders." Note also that it lacks black lines under the femora (I & II). The odd feature seems to be a black line at the edge of the carapace.

Thanks for that info
do you know how many Mangora sp. we are dealing with in that range?
